We are delighted to announce the launch of ‘Grime Opera: The Film’– a unique fusion of Grime and classical music, featuring the full performance by young Pedestrian musicians, LeicesterShire Music’s orchestras and documentary interviews from well-known local Grime artists.

From the vision of VIP Studio’s Max Wheeler and originally created by MC Eyez and Essex Music Hub, the Grime Opera has evolved in Leicester. Now, re-worked and written with original lyrics and beats, spotlighting talents of local artists, Tian and Strizzy. It’s fresh. It’s exciting. It’s something you won’t want to miss.


Grime Opera is funded by Arts Council England (ACE) and in partnership with LeicesterShire Music, Highcross Leicester, Drum & Brass and National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NJYO).

We hope you enjoy the film!
