Federico Fellini's Oscar Winning Masterpiece
Based on the subject and script work by Federico Fellini, Ennio Flaiano and Tullio Pinelli
Federico Fellini's Oscar-winning La Strada is one of the all-time masterpieces of world cinema. This musical adaptation is directed by Bristol's own Olivier Award nominee Sally Cookson (Jane Eyre, Peter Pan) and boasts a beautiful new score by Benji Bower with songs performed by an international cast of actor musicians.
La Strada ‘The Road', a metaphor for life, is a deeply impassioned tale of love and loss, set against the backdrop of a country still reeling from the devastating effects of the second world war. We journey into the heart of the Italian countryside where Gelsomina, full of the innocent spirit of youth, is bought by Zampano, a travelling street performer, to join his ‘strong man' act. When the mismatched pair stumble across a ragtag circus and a daredevil tight-rope walker, Gelsomina finds herself caught between the two men, not knowing which way to turn...
Moving between the dazzling lights of the circus and the bare landscapes of rural Italy, this production of La Strada promises to be a theatrical feast for all the senses.

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our front of house King Street entrance into a welcoming, vibrant space that everyone will be able to enjoy. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, however there are a few changes to how we'll be operating.
You are now invited to enter the Theatre through our Stage Door, walking in the footsteps of theatre legends such as Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day Lewis and Miranda Richardson.
Our new Theatre entrance can be accessed via Rackhay (BS1 4HJ) off Queen Charlotte Street, around the corner from King Street.

On performance days, tickets can be collected from Box Office situated in our Backstage Bar opening 90 mins prior to each performance.
