We're done lots of great things in the past. Here are a few reviews and comments of projects Roland And Tim produced before setting up Classical Mayhem in 2013.

Decomposed is what classical music has been waiting for!
— The List****
Comedy and classical music rarely marry up, but Classical Mayhem’s sixty minutes of quick-fire hilarity set to extracts from great composers makes for a perfect union, as highly entertaining as it is original. [On ‘Decomposed’]
— The Stage****
Well-written, well-performed and with a perfect balance of smart dialogue that grown-ups will love, and enough silly, zombie chat for the kids. [On ‘Decomposed’]
— The List****
...equally enjoyed by children and adults alike. It is well worth a visit - you won’t regret it! [On ‘Decomposed’]
— one4review****
The success of this show is largely due to the two actors playing Will and Igor, whose remarkable stage presence and sense of comic timing contribute to engaging and amusing the audience throughout the show. [On ‘Decomposed’]
— BroadwayBaby****
For two joyously barmy hours on Saturday afternoon…a mayhem of music
— The Times ****
The cast of two give a delightfully endearing performance, and I feel sure they could be setting up a life-long love of classical in at least some of the children they perform to. [On ‘Decomposed’]
— Three Weeks****
[On ‘Musicircus’ at the London Coliseum] A delightful cacophony
— Evening Standard ****
It’s hard to imagine any [Musicircus] being as much fun as this one’
— The Guardian ****
With Remix, however, he has proved an important point: done well, community outreach isn’t a project, it’s a party. And that’s something to excite even the sternest of operatic purists.
— The Arts Desk ****
The popularity of the idea was shown by the fact seats for the show quickly sold out, while queues for the 1,400 standing tickets available on the day built up from lunchtime.
— The Telegraph
More than 1,000 people, including Proms director Roger Wright, had brought their own ukes along for a communal performance of the Ode to Joy from Beethoven’s Ninth. It sounded curiously Venetian, a bit like a serenade. As a non-uke person, I ended up rather wishing I played one. Tremendous.
— The Guardian ****
[On ‘An evening with Victor and Albert] Thank you for a superb evening last night. I think that the repeated encore calls showed you how much everyone enjoyed it. A real treat to spend the evening laughing with abandon!
— Lisa Sanderson, Frieth, Bucks.
‘Your show was an absolute outrage and has brought nothing but disgrace upon our village. Keep up the good work. Cheers!’
— Doug Jenner, Kimpton, Herts
