World Premiere

Berlin, 1949.

An ‘iron curtain’ draws across war ravaged Germany. Berlin divides in two. Trapped in the East, two young lovers become embroiled in the chaos of circumstance, art, love and American jazz.

With a Broadway influenced score, a live 14-piece orchestra and stellar cast, Propaganda promises to be a musical for our time.

Commissioned by the Lyric Theatre, and developed with the Lyric New Writing department, Propaganda: A New Musical by double Ivor Novello- nominated composer Conor Mitchell is an old fashioned Soviet love story
