         Esaura – a new Danish musical

At the moment the development of the 4th. project from Uterus is in full swing. The musical is based on local Danish history, more precisely on a Danish novel by Carl E. Simonsen called “Abraham Fournais”. It takes places around the siege of the town of Fredericia in 1849.
The book is written by Mads Æbeløe Nielsen (DK) (Steam), music and lyrics are written by John Bucchino (US) (e.g. “A catered affair”). Involved in the process is also librettist/lyricist Jennifer Toksvig (UK).
A showcase version of the musical is planned to be premiered at an annual festival celebrating the Danish victory in Fredericia July 6th. 1849. This is planned to be in the beginning of July 2010.
