COMEDY MEETS CLASSICS – 45 Min. / Pause / 60 Min.

COMEDY MEETS CLASSICS is with the comedy duo Carrington-Brown, British comedians based in Germany and Irish conductor, Clíodhna Ní Aodáin based in Switzerland.

Rebecca Carrington and Clíodhna Ní Aodáin studied Cello at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester with Emma Ferrand and have been friends ever since. She fell into Comedy and first had a one-woman show. Now she has a duo with her husband Colin Griffiths-Brown. Carrington-Brown

Rebecca always dreamed of doing a show with orchestra and so the three sat down and created COMEDY MEETS CLASSICS

COMEDY MEETS CLASSICS is a show in two acts. 45min and 60mins.

The basic story of “Comedy meets Classics,” is about Rebecca and Colin, how they met, fell in love, got married, went on honeymoon, got lost, and found each other again.
The role of Clíodhna Ní Aodáin is Conductor of the Orchestra who has to deal with the Unexpected!

COMEDY MEETS CLASSICS takes us all over the world, from England (Capriol Suite) to Italy (Spoof of O mio Babbino caro) to the world of Opera (Carmen in 3mins!) and waltzes in Vienna. Mac the knife makes an appearance (sung by Louis Armstrong) and then Marylin Monroe shows up and they sing Dream a little Dream together.
The first half ends with their Honeymoon, which begins in Paris with La Vie on Rose (sung by Edith Piaf)

In the second half the Honeymoon continues in South America with Piazzola and Tangos (with Orchestra choreography). Then up to Brazil (girl/boy from Ipanema), on to North America (Old man river and Over the Rainbow spoof) A visit to India, Bollywood which then leads to a point in the show to where a Folk song is inserted, that everybody knows from the country we are playing in so that the orchestra and audience can sing it together!

Finally a visit to Scotland, England and Ireland (Danny Boy) finishes off this amazing journey, where the musical numbers are interspersed with storytelling and hilarious and slapstick moments.

Now, enjoy the journey!
