The BEST EVER overture – which show gets your vote?

“Overtures are out of style now. I miss them. It’s the show’s way of welcoming you.” The Drowsy Chaperone.

The Drowsy Chaperone’s Man in the Chair had a point. Overtures may have somewhat fallen out of favour, but they serve an important purpose – allowing the audience to settle, sweets to be unwrapped and, most important of all, to introduce the audience to the show’s musical themes; a little amuse bouche to whet the appetite before the main course arrives.

So which is your favourite overture? Vote below (feel free to pick more than one!) – and if we’ve missed your favourite feel free to add it. Once we’ve totted up your votes, we’ll publish your top ten and look at what makes them so unforgettable!
