What about the story keeps audiences coming back again and again to see The Phantom of the Opera? Is it the lushly romantic score composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber? Or could it be the costumes and scenery, so widely seen across the globe - and so easily identifiable as being from The Phantom - that they are considered iconic? Or could it be the mysteriously intriguing and sumptuously romantic Gaston Leroux story?

Otello runs for eight performances on April 27, 30, May 3, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 2019.

Circa Waves today unveil the video for 'Sad Happy', the eponymous first single from the Sad side of their forthcoming album Sad Happy (release on March 13, 2020). A banging, soulful track that drives along strummed chords and keyboard riffs, it's another  example of Kieran Shudall's ever developing songwriting, perfectly encapsulating the uptempo yet emotional tensions that cut right to the heart of the album Sad Happy. The video is directed by fast rising duo Bousher & Gee, and sees Shudall in the middle of a One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest-esque nightmare. Cutting between performance footage and the story of Schudall's descent as one of a group of heartbroken clowns going through increasing twisted therapy sessions, the video tracks his hellish inner turmoil and the brutal 'treatment' that eventually leads him to the point of no return.
