National Youth Music Theatre’s Brass at City Varieties

The NYMT commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War in Brass.

National Youth Music Theatre

To commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War National Youth Music Theatre has commissioned a new work from Benjamin Till.

The story follows a group of Leeds residents from the start of the war until the battle of the Somme in 1916. The men, members of an amateur brass band, join up to the Leeds Pals regiment and their womenfolk decide to learn the instruments that the men have left behind to keep the spirit of the brass band alive and to play for them when they triumphantly return to the city after the war. We watch the women trying to learn the brass instruments whilst the men simply try to stay alive. It is an epic musical about love and survival.

Brass is at City Varieties Music Hall from Wednesday 20th – Saturday 23rd August 2014. Evenings 7.30pm; Fri & Sat matinees: 2.30pm. Tickets are priced between £10 and £20. Book online at cityvarieties.co.uk or call box office on 0113 243 0808.
