Chaplin meets Tchaikovsky 
Internationally renowned musical clowns Släpstick present Schërzo, classical music as you've never experienced it before, fresh from a smash-hit run at Edinburgh Fringe and now at Wilton's Music Hall!  
scherzo [noun] joke, banter 
Join Släpstick’s unique brand of mischief where physical theatre, world-class musicians and raucous humour collide.  
Masterpieces from Rossini, Brahms, Schubert, Saint-Saëns, Gershwin, and more, meet comedy heroes such as Victor Borge, Laurel & Hardy, Danny Kaye, and Charlie Chaplin
Neither bewigged composer nor magnum opus is safe from buffoonery in this clownish concerto. Expect yodeling Schubert in a ventriloquism battle with Beethoven, a speed devil on the double bass and the popular '21 masterpieces in 1 minute'. 
Awarding-winning Släpstick have sold out concert halls from The Netherlands to New Zealand. Now Schërzo lands in London, following a world premiere at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and concerts in Germany and South Korea.
