The award-winning Släpstick bring a unique brand of mischief where physical theatre, world-class musicians and raucous humour collide in this uproarious music production. Expect Schubert in a ventriloquy battle with Beethoven, a speed demon on the double bass and Släpstick’s popular ‘21 masterpieces in 1 minute’ number. In classical music, a scherzo is a vigorous, light or playful composition, which Släpstick play on in their whimsical show that will leave audiences in stitches.

Chaplin meets Tchaikovsky in this laugh-out-loud, impressive production from the Netherlands’ renowned musical comedians features masterpieces from Rossini, Brahms, Schubert, Saint-Saëns, Gershwin and more, meeting in hilarious manner with comedy heroes such as Laurel & Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, Victor Borge and Danny Kaye. No one is safe from buffoonery in this clownish concerto – not bewigged classical composer, nor magnum opus as Släpstick take on composers and comedians alike for a riotous night of music this autumn.

Släpstick comments, Schërzo is a ‘nothing’s sacred’ take on a classical concert. Schërzo is a way to poke fun at a genre of music that’s normally seen as rather elitist. We try to stay true to our slapstick roots: the audience is guaranteed heaps of physicality, oddball instruments, and musical fireworks.
