I recently interviewed Jonathan Dove about his new opera Marx in London (libretto by Charles Hart), which has received its premiere at Theater Bonn, in a production directed by Jürgen R. Weber, conducted by David Parry with designs by Hank Irwin Kittel. Mark Morouse was Marx, with Yannick-Muriel Noah as Jenny, Marie Heeschen as Tussy, Christian Georg as Freddy, Ceri Williams as Helene and Johannes Mertes as Engels.

Now we are able to present a few pictures of Jürgen R. Weber's steam-punk production (photographs by Thilo Beu). The production runs until 14 February 2019, full details from the Theater Bonn website. It is a co-production with Scottish Opera so we should be seeing the opera in the UK before too long.

You can see the trailer for the opera on Vimeo, and there is also an illuminating 'making-of' video. Also read my interview with Jonathan.
