Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels will premiere at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) in Buckinghamshire on 15th May 2019.
Taking place in the location where Aardman’s Nick Park began his first Wallace & Gromit film, Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels is a live orchestral interactive experience. Both Nick Park and composer of the Wallace & Gromit scores Julian Nott (also an alumnus of the NFTS) will also take part in a question and answer session as part of the event.
Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels features Wallace preparing to perform his musical masterpiece My Concerto in Ee Lad with help from his faithful companion Gromit. It features specially created animations as well as live orchestral accompaniment and escapades from the Picture House Orchestra and presenter Matthew Sharp.
Wallace & Gromit: The Wrong Trousers and A Grand Day Out, for its 30th anniversary, will also be accompanied by a live orchestra. This is a unique opportunity for Aardman lovers to experience the films in an entirely new way.
Musical Marvels, The Wrong Trousers and the orchestra will then tour the UK in venues from London to Edinburgh from 16th May 16th until 9th June.
Speaking about the premiere and tour, Carrot Productions’ Managing Director, Rachel Whibley, said, “We are delighted that Aardman have granted us exclusive rights to launch this exciting new tour in the UK, and especially honoured to be staging the premiere at NFTS, including a Q and A session with the incomparable Nick Park and the wonderful composer, Julian Nott. As the world’s leading performers of big screen showings of The Snowman with live orchestra, 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”.
