Xanadu finale (c)Gem Hall 2019

There is a lightness to the song choices, that combined with a visual, builds a euphoria. It was hard to choose from such a recent and rich era that means so much to people. We tried to follow a vein or theme to create a joyful whole - the road to Xanadu - a feeling of ecstatic joy!”
— James Keay, composer and musical director
