Fever Pitch the Opera archiveHornby's book follows the ups and downs of life supporting Arsenal Football Club, intertwining stories of matches and the fortunes of the club with those of his own life as a writer. Composer Scott Stroman (HOT's Artistic Director) and librettist Tamsin Collison have re-imagined it as a comedy/drama featuring a cast of five professional actors and ten professional musicians with a large community chorus that includes 40 local school children. With a musical style encompassing classical and jazz to terrace chants and folk-rock, the show reflects the diversity of our community and our common love of music that draws people together.
