It’s time to grab your dancing shoes, magic wand and…a raincoat as we head on a mind boggling journey through one man’s dreams and quite possibly the strangest love story ever told. We’ll be dancing at a masked ball, sheltering from thunder storms and casting witches’ spells as Rachel Leach takes us through the music and madness of Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique. Like five different stories rolled into one, each scene opens up onto a new adventure for all the family, each one more fantastical than the next!
