Acclaimed beatboxer SK Shlomo, and his incredibly energetic show, is like nothing you have seen before – jaw dropping, inspirational and totally absorbing. A Guinness World Record breaker, SK Shlomo gave up astrophysics to perform his amazing vocal pyrotechnics. It was a good move. Since then he has won global acclaim and worked with some of the biggest names in music including Bjork, Damon Albarn, Martha Wainwright, Basement Jaxx and The Specials. In the process he has continually pushed the boundaries of beatboxing, bringing the art form to new and unexpected audiences.
Raised on a strict childhood diet of orchestral percussion and jazz drums, SK Shlomo instinctively began making vocal music as a small child. He first found critical acclaim as a beatboxer aged 18 when he began touring with the award winning multinational hip hop group Foreign Beggars, and was named the “Harry Potter of beatboxing” by BBC Radio 1’s Tim Westwood.

Once upon a time there was a princess called Ida, who had been betrothed in infancy to Prince Hilarion of the neighbouring kingdom. But Ida did not want to marry the prince. Instead, she renounced mankind and founded a women’s university, where she wielded axes, ate cold roast lamb, and taught the theory of evolution with dubious accuracy...
Bristol Gilbert and Sullivan Operatic Society proudly presents Princess Ida, a hilarious twist on a traditional medieval fairy tale. Join Hilarion as he attempts to infiltrate Castle Adamant and woo his promised bride, enlisting the help of his friends Cyril and Florian. Inevitably, the three are forced to dress as women and hilarity ensues—but some things are not so certain. Can Ida, with dignity, her post resign? Or will Prince Hilarion’s hopes be sadly blighted? And most importantly: what is the thing that’s known as ‘Man’?
