Production à la création:

Based on the novel “Mutiny on the Bounty”, this was the story of Captain Bligh commanding HMS Bounty. Repelled by his cruelty, and attracted to the idyllic life they had observed on the Pacific island of Tahiti, 18 crewmen headed by Fletcher Christian staged a mutiny. Bligh and a few men loyal to him were set afloat in a small boat, and the mutineers settled in Tahiti, subsequently burning the Bounty to avoid detection. After many years the law caught up with them.

Commentaires : This started as a 1983 concept LP by David Essex which spawned a Top Ten hit record, “Tahiti”. The stage version was lavish, featuring a fully rigged sailing ship mounted on a hydraulic system and “sailing” spectacularly to and fro. The music was pastiche marches, sea-shanties and hornpipes. The initial reviews were damning: “Disaster at sea”, “Bounty in Blunderland”, “A sinking showboat” - but somehow the producers found the money to keep it running. As it entered its second year it was announced that David Essex would be replaced by David Cassidy but a sudden decision was made and the show closed abruptly in September. It had lost all its original investment and more due to high running costs.
