MUSIC TO ENGAGE, EXCITE AND ENTERTAIN THE WHOLE FAMILY! Prepare to be transported into space by Strauss' Also sprach Zarathustra and back down-to-earth again (the Wild West, to be exact) to become a cowboy in Copland's Rodeo, a bullfighter in Bizet's Carmen, a Pirate of the Caribbean in music from the film, before losing yourself in Mussorgsky's magical and mysterious Pictures at an Exhibition. You'll even get an opportunity to sing along with the audience as the orchestra performs the curiously named Meerkat Tango written by our presenter Paul Rissmann.

Duration: 1 hour
Tickets: Child €10 | Adult €15 | Family of 4 (to include 1 adult) €40
