As part of its tradition to stage a high quality production during the Easter break, the National Troupe of Nigeria will be staging a music folk theatre production titled ‘Spectacle’. The four-part production according to a statement credited to the Artistic Director Mr. Akin Adejuwon would be staged on Sunday April 5, 2015 at the Cinema Hall 2 of the National Theatre beginning at 3.30pm.

Adejuwon stated that the thematic thrust of the musical theatre excursion is national unity. But he explained that the conceptual framework does not lie in the exposition of lyrics paying lip service to the unity of the people but in the unification of dissimilar artistic backgrounds and materials into harmonious art form within real-time creative space.

“The two fold concept of the creative unity lies in the fusion of the different artistic elements in performance- the unity of the elements of the African performative stage on one hand and on the other hand, the wholesome representation of our diverse cultural heritage on the national stage through the use of music, songs, dance, narratives, masks and chants’. He disclosed that admission for the command performance is at no cost to theatergoers.
