Pictures of Life: musical pageant
Pictures of Life was a musical pageant supporting the World Land Trust (WLT) aimed to encourage us to take action to protect our planet for future generations. Written by award-winning composer Lionel Oscar Segal for choir, soloists and orchestra, Pictures of Life was an uplifting look at how we can work together to protect the natural world before it is too late.
After the Event
The stars of the show, appearing direct from the West End, were: Amelia Cormack singing Gaia and Ian Carlyle singing the Eagle. Amelia’s credits include Diva, from Priscilla Queen of the Desert (the original Australian and West End cast), while Ian is currently in We Will Rock You, and his other West End roles include the shows The Lion King, Porgy and Bess, Miss Saigon and Carmen Jones.
The barbershop quartet features Jeremy Finch, Joel Hutchings, Anton Tweedale and Sunil Pramanik, who between them have appeared in acclaimed West End and Operatic productions at venues including Theatre Royal Drury Lane and the ENO.
There was a free preview performance on the concourse of St Pancras, followed by a pageant-like procession which will culminate with an hour long premiere performance at The Camden Centre.
In conjunction with the performances, Quirkas Productions also ran a mini environmental expo at the Camden Centre with stalls, fun interactive children’s activities, and a raffle. WLT had a stall at the event where you could find out more about our work saving some of the most threatened wildlife on Earth.
