When your life is burned to the ground and you are handed a sword, do you take it? Would you sail towards certain death to pursue what is right?
The Baltimore Rock Opera Society is proud to present our final show of 2016: Brides of Tortuga! This raucous, rebellious rock and roll musical begins in 1661 in Calais, France, and crosses the wild & dangerous open Atlantic Ocean and comes to a bloody close in the Caribbean Sea. The show follows Charlotte, a French freedom fighter who must figure out how to captain an unblooded crew and escape the French Navy who are hot on their tails, and Mary, a humble barmaid who gets swept up in the adventure.
Brides of Tortuga features a large cast, epic sets, intensive fight choreography, a stirring vocal ensemble, and live rock band buttressed by strings, horns and a strong percussion section. The show is a powerful statement about rage, self-determination and kicking ass on a boat.
Brides of Tortuga is the 8th original production written and produced by the Baltimore Rock Opera Society.
… a wonderfully ambitious labor of passion, attempting something much more epic than most community theatres would dare.
