The first musical version of Nick Hornby's book Fever Pitch, which famously follows the ups and downs of life supporting Arsenal Football Club, is staged at the Union Chapel, in the heart of north London where the book is set. Performed by Highbury Opera Theatre, the musical explores the author's obsession with Arsenal and is really an "opera for people who think that they don't like opera" says composer Scott Stroman. He and librettist Tamsin Collison have re-imagined the book as a comedy/drama featuring a cast of five professional actors, ten professional musicians and a chorus which includes 40 local school children.

 

About Union Chapel

There's something quite magical about this place and you will be hard pushed to find a more memorable location to listen to live music in London. More about Union Chapel
