One of the all-time great musicals, Sunset Boulevard is a compelling story of romance and obsession.

In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded silent-screen goddess Norma Desmond lives in a fantasy.

Impoverished screenwriter Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive world.

Persuaded to work on Norma’s ‘masterpiece’, a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her and her luxurious lifestyle.

Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try to break free, with dramatic consequences.

Ria received standing ovations every night in the role of Norma Desmond at the London Coliseum.

With its much-loved score, including Sunset Boulevard, With One Look, The Greatest Star Of All and The Perfect Year, performed with full orchestra, this production promises to be a spectacular one.
