Far Far Away: Beethoven and the Dinosaurs

Travel back in time 200 million years to the age of the dinosaurs. Dance with a Diplodocus, soar with a Pterodactyl, and roar like a Tyrannosaur.

This immersive storytelling concert features new chamber arrangements of Beethoven’s iconic music and an original story from Kate Wakeling, critically-acclaimed poet and Aurora Writer-in-Residence. Audiences are invited to listen, sing, dance, and enter a magical world of music, discovery, and play.

Part of Far, Far Away, an Aurora Orchestra series of storytelling performances for children and families.

Aurora Orchestra

Aurora Orchestra appearing at this event

Aurora Orchestra aims to inspire, challenge and astonish new audiences with great music, brilliantly performed. It seeks to be the UK's most versatile orchestra, combining world-class performance with eclectic and innovative programming, a commitment to adventurous collaboration across perceived frontiers of musical genre and artistic form, and a refusal to be bound by convention. 'In a city suffocating with musical activity, Nicholas Collon's Aurora Orchestra lets in more fresh air than most. The aim is to make an audience hear anew, not by sugaring any pills, not by didactic explanation, not by light-shows, but by context' (The Times) 'It is hard to imagine performances more assured and expressive than these by Nicholas Collon and the Aurora Orchestra' (BBC Music Magazine).
