This show celebrates Tommy, the fourth studio album by The Who, 50 years after it was first released in May 1969. The album captured a ground-breaking moment in rock history; this rock opera tells the fascinating and complex story of a "deaf, dumb and blind" boy and his extraordinary life experiences.
The central character is Tommy himself. Born during the First World War, he becomes blind, deaf and dumb after seeing a murder committed by his parents. He then becomes a pinball champion, reaches a state of grace, regains his senses and starts his own religion.
He is eventually discarded by his disciples and finds himself as isolated as he was when he was a young boy. The opera is, apart from being some of the best rock music ever, a statement of Pete Townshend’s philosophy. “It’s about life,” he says.
