Jonathan Dove Gaspard's Foxtrot (world premiere concert performance)

This summer, join beloved children’s character Gaspard the Fox for the musical adventure of a lifetime.

In this brand new story from author Zeb Soanes, follow Gaspard as he accidentally boards a bus to Hyde Park – what will happen to our favourite fox?

See the tale unfold with a piece specially written by renowned composer Jonathan Dove, alongside live illustration by artist James Mayhew and narration from the author himself.

Paired with Gaspard’s adventure, possibly the best-loved orchestral work for children ever written: Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf.
