About

Set up at Goldsmiths, University of London as part of MA Musical Theatre, Cymbidium Theatre Company focuses on the development of new musical theatre and the reworking of stories to bring a new light, and audience, to the pieces.

We are currently developing two new hour-long musicals: Free Solo, a memory piece about a woman reliving her unconventional childhood as the daughter of Free Solo rock climber John Robinson; and Xi Xiang Ji (Romance of the West Chamber), an ancient Chinese story of a noble woman’s search for love following the death of her father, brought to a Western audience using a mixture of Eastern and Western styles.
