  • Arcola Theatre 24 Ashwin Street London, E8 3DL United Kingdom (map)

“Music should strike fire from the heart of a man, and bring tears from the eyes of a woman.” Ludwig van Beethoven.

“Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

With Basement Orchestra on hand to bust out each contender’s greatest hits – no filler tunes – this is going to be the fight of the millennium.
