Jekyll and Hyde

The live score to the hotly anticipated dance thriller Jekyll & Hyde has been released on Air-Edel records! The album features music by Tony-nominated, award-winning composer Grant Olding and is available to buy from a number of digital platforms including Amazon, Spotify and iTunes.

Devised and directed by Olivier award-winning theatre choreographer Drew McOnie, Jekyll & Hyde re-imagines Robert Louis Stevenson’s sinister drama in an excitingly physical new dance production. The production opens at The Old Vic on 25 May, with previews from 20 May, for a limited run until 28 May 2016.

Composer Grant Olding commented:

‘The challenge of creating a dance score with a split personality was the jumping off point for the music of Jekyll & Hyde. It’s been enormous fun finding two distinct sound worlds and harmonic palettes that summed up Drew’s characters of Dr Jekyll – a wistfully romantic botanist and his dark, sexy, dangerous alter-ego Mr Hyde, which has created a score with such contrasts.”
