A magical mix of classical music and words by William Shakespeare are being conjured up in a live orchestral concert at Sheringham Little Theatre in March.

The Flights of Fantasy evening features Sinfonia Viva, well known in north Norfolk for their appearances at Blickling Hall's summer Proms concerts.

It combines two works of 'storytelling bravado' - Der Freischutz by Weber is based on a German folk tale of romance, rivalry and marksmanship, and The Bard's dreamlike A Midsummer Night's Dream mingled with Mendelssohn's music.

Organisers say both works take a highly-dramatic and carnivalesque approach to issues such as feminism, relationships and love.

Actor and producer Simon Hollingworth and the orchestra have reimagined the two classic tales through narration and chamber music.
