Fiesta (The Sun Also Rises)Duration 2h15

Trafalgar Studios 2, 14 Whitehall, London, United Kingdom, SW1A 2DY

The intimate Trafalgar Studio 2 hosts the world premiere of Fiesta (The Sun Also Rises), an original theatrical experience that combines explosive theatre with live jazz music.

Based on Ernest Hemingway's first novel The Sun Also Rises, Fiesta (The Sun Also Rises) fuses live music from jazz band Trio Farouche and dynamic choreography into a play that portrays the sensual beauty and the raw brutality of Hemingway’s tale of love, loss and decadence.

The cast includes Gideon Turner (Don Juan at the Donmar Warehouse), Jye Frasca (Wicked, Jersey Boys), Josie Taylor (My Name Is Rachel Corrie at the Royal Court) and Jack Holden (War Horse).
