Join music leader/storyteller Raph Clarkson and the amazing musicians of Sinfonia Cymru for a gripping tale of heroism and adventure. Follow our heroine Leonora as she goes undercover to rescue the wrongfully imprisoned Florestan, and be inspired by some awesome music written by composers including Ludwig van Beethoven, whose 250th anniversary we celebrate in 2020. Lots of opportunities for joining in, including two songs for everyone to sing together.

This show is perfect for children aged 6 - 11. All schools will receive a Resource Pack including guide tracks for two audience songs along with ideas for linked expressive arts activities.
