Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of The Worlds
In December 2012, the NIA’s stage will be coming alive with The War of the Worlds as Jeff Wayne brings his new musical version, ‘The New Generation’, to the Birmingham-based venue, with a new, very special guest narrator: Liam Neeson. The musical spectacular is a new interpretation of Jeff Wayne’s 1978 concept album which tells the classic story of ‘The War of the Worlds’ by HG Wells.
The arena show will feature CGI graphics, a live orchestra and performers. The narration will be provided by Liam Neeson who will appear in the show as an 11-foot high holographic head and shoulders as well as a full body holographic, which will interact with performers in the show; this is the first time this has ever been seen within live entertainment in the world.
