Take a first look at the European premiere of Jordan Tannahill's hot-blooded Botticelli in the Fire, opening on the Main Stage next week, with this brand new teaser trailer.... starring Dickie Beau as Sandro Botticelli.
Playboy Sandro Botticelli has it all: talent, fame, good looks. He also has the ear - and the wife - of Lorenzo de Medici, as well as the Renaissance’s hottest young apprentice, Leonardo.
But whilst at work on his breakthrough commission, ‘The Birth of Venus’, Botticelli’s devotion to pleasure and beauty is put to the ultimate test. As plague sweeps through the city, the charismatic friar Girolamo Savonarola starts to stoke the fires of dissent against the liberal elite. Botticelli finds the life he knows breaking terrifyingly apart, forcing him to choose between love and survival.
Botticelli in the Fire runs on the Main Stage from 18 October - 23 November
