Graffiti Classics in Concert

Event information

A comedy cabaret of exquisitely good music from a sensational, all-singing, all-dancing, string quartet. With virtuosic talent, cheek and wit, this is top-class entertainment to make you smile. 'A simply wonderful show.' The Times 'A cabaret that will leave you wanting more.' Daily Mail ______________________________________________________________________ 16 strings, 8 dancing feet and 4 voices with 1 aim: to make classical music wickedly funny and fantastically exhilarating. It's a classical concert, a gypsy-folk romp, an opera, a stand-up comedy set and a brilliant dance show all rolled into one; a world-class entertainment that never fails to get audiences young and old laughing, clapping and singing along. From Beethoven to bluegrass, Baroque to pop, Mozart to Elvis, Strauss to 'Saturday Night Fever', Graffiti Classics power through musical preconceptions of classical, jazz, opera and folk with virtuosic talent, cheek and wit. Exquisitely good music which doesn't take itself at all seriously. Graffiti Classics regularly tours theatres and festivals across the world, from Germany to Norway, from Spain to Singapore, from the Southbank Centre London to the Edinburgh Festival, from the Leeds International Jewish Festival to the New Orleans Mardi Gras, from the Albert Hall to Dick and Dom's 'Hoopla!' ______________________________________________________________________ 'A terrific quartet – the fab four earned themselves a standing ovation with a scintillating repertoire.' Nottingham Post 'Delightful… highbrow music finds some kind of frankly odd fusion with visual comedy for those who choose to smile their way around classical music.' The Stage 'From Cossack Dance to the cancan, they caper their way through the popular classics… a cabaret that will leave you wanting more.' Daily Mail
