The Great Enormo - A Kerfuffle in B flat for Orchestra, Wasps and Soprano, originally commissioned by the Brighton Festival; written by Michael Rosen, James Morgan & Juliette Pochin
Popular children's writer Michael Rosen (of We're Going on a Bear Hunt) presents an interactive guide to the orchestra for children and families. Be ready to be surprised, have lots of fun, go a little bit mad, be a little bit scared, and to help Michael and his crew perform some of the music. To begin, we introduce music connected to well-known stories – including Harry Potter and A Midsummer Night's Dream – to celebrate the opening of the Library of Birmingham this autumn. Then travel through time on a whirlwind musical tour to find a theme tune for Mr Enormo Biggins' Great Theme Park – packed full of rides from the wild west to intergalactic space, and pirates to roller coasters.
