1001 Arabian Nights starring  Brian Blessed & Rory Bremner

Rory BremnerClick below to listen and read RORY BREMNER‘s interviews about working on The Opus Pocus

“I loved being involved with this project – the idea of setting a funny and fast-moving script to the original music was inspired, creating a lively and engaging experience that I’ve rarely experienced in classical music productions for a younger audience. It could become a kind of ‘Peter and the Wolf’ for a new generation.”
Rory Bremner

Brian Blessed“The script had me chuckling from start to finish, but I was also struck by how original the concept was: a children’s story written to perfectly overlay an entire symphony (and Rimsky-Korsakov’s ‘Scheherazade’ is one of my favourites, by the way) as an exciting introduction to classical music. Ingeniously musical indeed!” Brian Blessed
