Nemo Jules Verne Mady Mantelin Shoreham Wordfest Ropetackle

A dramatic presentation of Jules Verne’s most famous novel by Mady Mantelin.

In French and English, with original music by Pierre Naffah.

Following the outstanding success at last year’s Wordfest, Parisian actress Mady Mantelin presents a dramatic interpretation of Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea. Based on the mysterious and fascinating character of Captain Nemo, with music specially composed for this show, the audience is taken on an exceptional journey.

A chance to rediscover an author who Margaret Drabble hailed as anticipating the ecology movement and shaped the French avant-garde.

“Mady Mantelin aims to bring the true essence of the novel by the sheer power of her presence and immense talent.” ~ Jacques Salome
