A new production based on Herman Hesse's Siddhartha will be released in June 2020 and will feature Elton, Christopher Plummer, Nakhane, Pete Townshend, Elton John, Emeli Sandé, among others.
The Web site for The Seeker
calls it “a tale of human passion and spiritual awakening. Set in the vivid landscape of ancient India, The Seeker
will seduce audiences with its sweeping melodic lines, its rich orchestration and timeless themes of love, loss and a deep search for meaning in a troubled world.”
An album originally expected to be released in 2018, recorded by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, is now coming in June 2020, with an all-star assemblage of actors and singers.
Elton is 'Kamaswami.' The cast also includes Indian singer Sunidhi Chauhan, and British actor Tyrone Huntley.
