Equally at home as a conductor, pianist and orchestrator, Greg’s diverse career has taken him all over the world. International theatre credits as musical director include Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Esplanade Theatre Singapore, Chess at the Princess Of Wales Theatre, Fame at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco and The Rocky Horror Picture Show European tour.

UK credits include Hairspray and The Far Pavilions at the Shaftesbury, Cole Porter's Aladdin and Shall We Dance at Sadler's Wells, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice at the Vaudeville, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium and Mykal Rand's new production of Smokey Joes Café at the Landor.

Greg conducted the orchestral recordings for the Sheherazade CD and for two more albums that are currently in production: Swan Lake and Peer Gynt. As a musical director Greg has always seen his role as more than just conductor, acquiring an in-depth knowledge of all technical aspects of running a show and bringing these skills – and much more – to his role in producing The Opus Pocus Live.


1001 Arabian Nights starring  Brian Blessed & Rory Bremner

Rory BremnerClick below to hear 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. a magical idea indeed!”

– Brian Blessed
