Damon’s Astrological Stage Show

Following his triumph with Monkey: Journey to the West, Blur frontman Damon Albarn has now penned a new stage show, Doctor Dee about 16th Century astrologer, alchemist and spy John Dee.

Damon Albarn will also star in his musical work about the ultimate renaissance man, Elizabeth I’s medical and scientific adviser.

The inspiration for both Marlowe’s Faust and Shakespeare’s Prospero, Dee studied the heavens, spoke with archangels and sadly paid the price.

Doctor Dee will have its premiere in July at the Manchester International Festival from 1st – 9th July at Manchester’s Palace Theatre.
