Beggar’s Opera – The Newgate Prison Scene


As part of his project EveryDayMusic, Rod Matheson filmed some of our closing matinee performance of Beggar’s Opera! And now the footage has gone live, so I wanted to share it with all you lovely folk!

(I’m the shorter masked prisoner who is singing at the very start of the clip. My chief role was as Filch, but the happy prisoner was my favourite. 🙂 )

The show was adapted and directed by David Newham, with music composed and directed by Daniel Deorksen.
