After a procession of International Flags start off this sporting extravaganza, we hear John Williams’ Summon the Heroes from the opening ceremony of the 1996 Olympics.
Imagine the sporting silverware being brought home in triumph with The Grand March from Aida, discover how football-fanatic composer Shostakovitch was the perfect choice of a ballet about a football team. Take an energetic bicycle ride to a fantastic new piece, Pedal Power composed by Rob Lea before showing your true colours as we support two rival teams who meet in the final of a football match for audience and orchestra, then raise our voices loudly to sing along to Alasdair’s match-day medley A Football Fan-Tasia.
