Get ready for the musical event of the season as Cole Porter’s timeless classic, High Society, comes to the Grand Opera House Belfast, in a dazzling new production from the acclaimed producers of The King and I.
Wealthy socialite Tracy Lord is in the midst of planning a lavish summer wedding when her ex-husband Dexter Haven turns up to disrupt the proceedings in an attempt to try and win her back. A further twist arrives in the form of charming reporter Mike Connor who falls instantly for Tracy, and she for him. As the day of the wedding draws closer, we’re left guessing which groom the bride will choose!
Adapted from the hit 1956 film, High Society bubbles with a host of beautiful ballads including True Love, You’re Sensational and the unforgettable Well, Did You Evah! So prepare yourself for a glorious night of vintage Hollywood as you’re invited to the wedding of the year, and what a swell party it is gonna be!
