Enter the prize draw to meet Brian Cox

Money raised will go towards funding new pianos for LAMDA's forthcoming Musical Theatre courses.

Brian Cox CBE, award-winning actor and LAMDA graduate, shows no signs of slowing down even though he's into his sixth decade of a career characterised by memorable performances on the stage and screen and on radio. 

During the run of The Score at the Theatre Royal Bath this autumn, Brian will star as J.S. Bach and has generously offered his support to LAMDA, his alma mater, by offering two press night tickets for the performance on 19 October via a crowdfunding campaign. 

Enter the prize draw

All funds raised will help to pay for new pianos for LAMDA this autumn, when we will also be welcoming the first cohorts of our new Musical Theatre postgraduate courses. The enduring importance of the keyboard will be enjoyed by a new generation. 

Additionally, Brian Cox will meet the winners of the prize draw at the after-show party which will be attended by the cast, the production team and guests to mark the official opening of the play. 

After his combative role as a dynastic patriarch in the HBO blockbuster series, Succession, Brian Cox will enter a battle of a different kind as the devout composer, J.S. Bach, who locks horns with the charismatic Prussian King, Frederick II, modestly known as Frederick the Great, in this new play by Oliver Cotton, directed by Trevor Nunn.

Frederick's military prowess is tempered by his patronage of the arts and music. He is an admirer of the accomplishments of J.S. Bach, despite his own atheist beliefs being at odds with Bach's religious observance.

In the spring of 1747 at the Prussian Royal Court at Schloss Sanssouci, the King sets Bach a knotty challenge – designed to vex the great composer and amuse his courtiers. When the regal gauntlet is dropped the result is a great homage to the magnificence of the keyboard.
