Tickets for Pacific Overtures at The Menier Chocolate Factory London 

One of Stephen Sondheim's most ambitious works is set to be staged at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London! Set in 19th-century Japan, Pacific Overtures centres around the clash of cultures triggered by the United States' 1853 expedition aimed at establishing Western relations with Japan. 

Pacific Overtures has enjoyed significant acclaim in Tokyo and Osaka, where it has been a massive hit. The ninth musical from Sondheim is considered by many to be his most unusual yet essential. Book your tickets now! 

What Pacific Overtures in London about? 

Nippon. The Floating Kingdom.

The tale of the Western arrival in Japan in 1853, a nation previously isolated, is depicted through a Western lens but enacted in an Eastern manner. Prior to this event, Japan had maintained centuries of peaceful isolation, untouched by external influences. Nonetheless, with the arrival of Commodore Perry and the Americans, a civilization characterized by its timeless traditions and uninterrupted tranquility starts to unravel due to the introduction of new concepts and influences.
