Book now: Southbank Centre online booking

In this vibrant concert drama, composer and jazz musician Roland Perrin spotlights the remarkable life of mobster Meyer Lansky – a key player in the criminal underworld who built an international gambling empire. Infused with Klezmer, New York and Cuban jazz styles, it is a vivid portrait of the ‘Mob’s Accountant’.
