The UK Premiere of the Finnish international musical comedy hit combining opera, musical variety and side-splitting physical comedy. Directed by Spymonkey's Toby Park and Aitor Basauri. Baritone Jouni B?ckstr?m invited his brother Petri on a trip, with the goal of spending some quality time cruising across the states on Route 66 with him. What starts as a heartfelt plan to create some amazing memories and to foster some brotherly love quickly falls apart as Petri throws a spanner in the works. This is a hilarious and hard to pin down musical comedy that is a great choice for a day out, with something for the whole family. Think Richard Wagner meets Johnny Cash in a Ring of Fire. The B?ckstr?m Brothers are widely talented musicians with a background in opera, but they have always felt that the discipline has a tendency to lean quite far towards a certain kind of elitism. This show was originally made to challenge the often ham-strung output often found in opera houses. It has now blossomed into a passionate and powerful show that proudly stands behind its operatic roots, whilst not taking itself too seriously.
