In this new Wallace and Gromit adventure with live orchestra, everyone's favourite hapless inventor and his faithful dog turn their hands (and paws) to the music business. Wallace is beaming with pride, having been commissioned to create a brand new piece of music. So with Gromit at his side, Wallace is preparing for the premiere of his musical masterpiece, 'My Concerto in Ee, Lad.' The orchestra and soloist are tuning up: what could possibly go wrong?
Musical Marvels features some cracking new animation of the dynamic duo's backstage moments, and is a great way for children to discover the thrill of hearing a live orchestra. Charismatic conductor Nicholas Collon and the brilliant and energetic Aurora Orchestra will introduce you to classical favourites by Mozart, Debussy, and Stravinsky.
In part 2 of the show, sit back and enjoy the multi award-winning A Matter of Loaf and Death on the big screen with Julian Nott's original orchestral score performed live by Aurora Orchestra.
