NEWSFLASH: It’s Official, Michael Reed joins EPOS as Orchestrator and Arranger!

Internationally acclaimed conductor, orchestrator and arranger Michael Reed joins EPOS musical! Reed, who conducted the London world premiere of "Phantom of the Opera" and has also been responsible for the orchestrations and arrangements of several major musical hits, is joining the EPOS team as orchestrator and arranger. Not only will his work be heard as part of the shows on the 30th and 31st of August in Vienna, but he will also be an integral part of the stage production once a producer signs on to bring EPOS to the big stage.

Michael Reed shares his excitement: “I’m really proud to be working with ZOË on EPOS. It’s a very exciting modern musical based on an age-old story. ZOË has written wonderful songs which I can’t wait to orchestrate! I really feel this is a piece for our times.”

Join the groundbreaking journey of the stage musical "EPOS", created by the talented artist, composer and lyricist ZOË. Not only is "EPOS" the first German-speaking musical written by a woman, but it also presents one of the first opportunities for European investors to be part of a musical and earn significant returns. By investing in "EPOS", you can benefit from the exploitation of the Grand Rights and participate in the pro-rata box-office remuneration of the Publisher’s Net Proceeds, potentially achieving up to 500% ROI.

The musical promises an exciting star-studded cast, which will be revealed in the coming months. With the renowned arranger & orchestrator Michael Reed on board, "EPOS" is set to captivate audiences and make a mark in the world of musical theatre. Michael Reed has an illustrious career, having conducted the London world premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera”. He has also been responsible for the orchestrations and arrangements of several major musical hits, including “Dance of the Vampires”, “Bat out of Hell”, “Ich war noch niemals in New York”, “I am from Austria” and most recently “Rock me Amadeus”.

The current timeline for "EPOS" includes a Workshop/Reading, scheduled for mid to end of August, where a select group of investors will have the opportunity to participate. This workshop will consist of 7 days of rehearsals culminating in a grand rehearsal on August 29th, followed by two exclusive shows for supporters, musical experts and interested producers/theatres. The public premiere of "EPOS" is envisioned for 2026, at which point investors will begin earning their share of the profits.

"EPOS" reimagines the medieval legendary story of the "Nibelungenlied," emphasizing the roles of women and challenging traditional notions of heroism. Drawing inspiration from the original saga, it delves into the intricate relationships and tragic events surrounding Siegfried, Kriemhild and other characters, while introducing contemporary themes. Through dynamic performances and innovative staging, future production of "EPOS" plans to invite audiences to immerse themselves in the rich tapestry of medieval legend and celebrate the enduring power of storytelling, with a focus on the stories of powerful women.

This is your chance to be part of history and contribute to the legacy of "EPOS". Join us on this epic journey and help bring this timeless tale to life on stage.

About ZOË

Zoë Straub was born into a family of musicians and was introduced to Mozart’s Magic Flute at a young age by her parents, sparking her love for opera. Growing up, she immersed herself in the rich history of musical theatre, developing a passion for iconic shows like “Jesus Christ Superstar,” “Cats,” and “Les Miserables.”

Already a successful singer-songwriter and actress, Zoë auditioned for a lead role in a major musical in early 2023 but narrowly missed out on the part in the final round. It was then that she decided to pursue her long-held dream of creating her own musical. Drawing inspiration from her school days, she chose the legendary medieval tale of the “Nibelungenlied” as her subject matter, aiming to infuse its timeless themes of love, betrayal, heroism, and vengeance into a modern musical context.

Over the course of a year, Zoë composed 20 songs for her musical, titled EPOS, blending her diverse musical influences, from epic ballads with lush orchestral arrangements to contemporary beats and Beatles-inspired melodies. The musical also incorporates rock elements, featuring distorted electric guitars and powerful drums, contrasted with quieter moments of piano and strings reminiscent of the 1960s, all carefully crafted to enhance the emotional journey of the story.

Zoë has assembled a team of top-tier talent, including an internationally renowned arranger and a stellar cast from the German-speaking musical world, to bring her vision to life.

Now, you have the opportunity to join Zoë on her journey. Support her next step by participating in the workshop and reading on August 30th and 31st, 2024. The workshop aims to inspire producers to bring EPOS to major theatres across German-speaking countries and to gain valuable feedback on how to further refine the production for a wide audience.

Looking forward to welcoming you on board!
