On Stage: A Clockwork Orange--The Musical

To celebrate next year's 50th anniversary of A Clockwork Orange, songs from Anthony Burgess's musical adaptation of his novel will be performed for the first time by graduates of the Royal Northern College of Music.

Burgess "started working on a stage version of A Clockwork Orange a decade after Stanley Kubrick's controversial 1971 film adaptation," the Guardian reported, adding that while the Royal Shakespeare Company premiered a production based on his script in 1990, songs by U2's Bono and the Edge replaced the original compositions.
