Wallace & Gromit will bring their Musical Marvels show to Edinburgh for the first time in June, featuring the iconic characters on the big screen with live orchestral accompaniment.
Ticket holders will be treated to brand new music to accompany Musical Marvels, which was first screened at the BBC Proms in 2012, along with interactive escapades and enthusiastic entertainment by presenter Matthew Sharp and the Picture House Orchestra.
This is a fantastic opportunity for young audiences to experience live classical music for the first time, in an accessible, fun way.
Parents will also enjoy reliving their youth, with a screening in the second half of the all-time classic Aardman animation, The Wrong Trousers, again with live orchestral accompaniment – a world first.
The tour is presented by Carrot Productions – who have been given exclusive rights to tour the production – and Carrot’s Managing Director, Rachel Whibley, said: “With six years’ experience behind us of presenting The Snowman to thousands of satisfied audience members across the country, we are well placed to deliver this wonderful Wallace & Gromit programme.
“It will be a pleasure to present such a high-quality show in partnership with the inspirational team at Aardman, providing huge fun for audiences of all ages”.
Musical Marvels is performed at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on Saturday 8 June (2pm and 6pm) and Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall on Sunday 9 June (2pm and 6pm).
Tickets start at £9, and the show runs for 85 minutes including an interval.
