Apollo’s Cabinet are bringing their award-winning show “A star is born – The making of Kitty Clive” to Cromarty!
Kitty Clive was the most famous singer-actress of the mid-eighteenth century and sought after by the managers of Drury Lane theatre. Composers such as Pepusch, Arne and Handel wrote arias specifically for her and she even collaborated with them on rewriting music to make it fit her style and persona, championing English musical theatre. Clive advocated for women’s rights in and outside the playhouse throughout her career, defined her own image and even reimagined herself as the first female comedian.
This programme follows her throughout her career, dramatizing events in her professional and personal life, some true to life and others with a pinch of creative freedom.
Described as where “Baroque meets Bridgerton” and hailed by Göttinger Tagblatt as “unconventional and convincing”, this programme is semi-staged and follows the fascinating actress and singer throughout her career, dramatizing events in her professional and personal life, some true to life and others with a pinch of creative freedom.
