Some Call It Home


We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.

J. Robert Oppenheimer


The Arts Institute at the University of Plymouth, in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth, presents Some Call It Home.

Join us for this provocative multimedia music drama that brings to the stage conflicting perspectives of our uneasy relationship with the land – our home, our planet.

With live music and international star soloists, this hard-hitting work of art – part of the Mayflower 400 commemorations – explores how we have shaped human destiny across time by bringing to life pivotal events involving our relationship to our land from 1620 to the present.

An ensemble comprised of musicians from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra conducted by Mark Forkgen, NYC Metropolitan Opera Young Artist award-winning soprano Erika Baikoff and the highly acclaimed baritone Timothy Nelson will bring this scintillating musical drama to live. Original music composed by internationally renowned composers Jane O’Leary and Jonathan Dawe. Created, produced and directed by Dr Robert Taub.
