One of the O2 replacements for Michael’s cancelled concerts is the production of ‘Peter Pan’, currently being performed in a pavilion at Kensington Gardens. The show will move to the O2 arena for a Christmas stint from December 1st to January 10th 2010.
The purpose built pavilion will be erected anew, and with an increased capacity of 1,350, in The O2’s Meridian Gardens.
Next year, following The O2 dates, Peter Pan will launch a 20-month North American tour from San Francisco in May, with a second production opening in New Zealand in January 2011 at the start of a Far Eastern tour.
This new version of JM Barrie’s 1904 family classic is adapted by Tanya Ronder and directed by Ben Harrison. Neverland, and the journey to it over the rooftops of London, is brought to life with a 360 degree, 3D virtual environment designed by William Dudley.
