Barockestra: Rocking the Classics

Enthusiastic rock take on well-known classical pieces

Rock interpretations of well-known classical pieces from Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and the like featuring a full rock band, opera singer and ballerinas to give a foot-tapping tour of the greats. Overlaid with a cheesy humour that you could only expect from ‘baroque’n’roll’ front man Steve Grant’s enthusiasm is catching, and while the show certainly caters for a select taste there is no doubting the talent of the musicians involved.

New Town Theatre, 0844 477 1000, until 29 Aug, 10.10pm, £11–£12 (£9–£10).
