The Sounds of Burt Bacharach – UK Tour 2010


It’s difficult to think of anyone else who has delivered musical goods as impeccably and consistently as Burt Bacharach. This production, created by Chris Dean, offers up sunny classics that bring memories from four decades.

Bacharach’s exquisite arrangements show us why he is one of the truly great tunesmiths of the past century, with such a gold mine of music, each and every song is a timeless hit.

Walk on by, The look of love, Raindrops keep falling on my head, Alfie and many many more.
Set these songs along side the most accomplished musicians and singers add some sophisticated choreography and you have a stylish show that promises a heart-stopping and pulse-quickening evening.

Not to be missed !
