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.
