Starring Poirot’s Sir David Suchet and musical theatre stars Louise Dearman, Celinde Schoenmaker, John Owen-Jones, Ashley Riches and Elena Xanthoudakis, Mimma will be presented as a semi-staged Gala Concert for one night only at Cadogan Hall alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra led by Richard Balcombe.

The shadow of Fascism drives Mimma, a young Italian journalist, to take refuge at her Uncle Lorenzo’s nightclub in London. Mimma forges an unassailable friendship with Sarah, an aspiring jazz singer, while her family are increasingly embroiled in resistance against Mussolini.

The coming conflict brings out the best and worst in people as Mimma’s brother is captured, Londoners prepare for Hitler’s Blitz, and fears of betrayal reach fever pitch. Mimma and Sarah are caught in the turmoil as Soho is torn apart by arrests and internments.

As England and Italy face their darkest hours, Mimma is in danger of losing everything. Everything – that is, except the one friend she can trust.

Mimma is a musical that bridges continents and cultures by blending soulful jazz, opera and musical theatre.
