A Classical Bedtime, Series 2 Episode 3

Episode synopsis

(3/10) All The World’s A Stage: We’re back for a second series of abject commentary and lovely music. We’re delving into pieces for the theatre this week, with picks from Puccini to Stravinsky and chat about concert halls and leg-room.

Series synopsis

I, Isaac, wanted an excuse (as a proud Northerner) to drink ginger-infused tea by becoming a member of the upper-middle class. Keoni (a pensioner) wants to feel young again by utilising the vast array of “youf’” words he’s learned at university to abuse me from the sidelines every time I make a mistake. Together, we will undoubtedly make a bedtime show with the singular potential to lull anyone to sleep – but only when we’re talking… (Oh, and David’s here, too.)
