Join us for this Exclusive up close performance in our Myre River Room. Seating is limited.
Kids, families, and music lovers, join us as we MEET MOZART! Through live music, stories, and song, the show takes us on an interactive journey to explore and learn about the instruments, scores, and themes that inspired Mozart to compose his greatest works, from variations on 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' through to his great orchestral pieces.
The production explores the instruments, scores, and themes behind the music and life of one of the world's most celebrated musicians through an atmosphere that is fun, participatory, and inclusive. Watch with delight as world-renowned pianist Simon Tedeschi assumes the persona of the mischievous musical wunderkind himself, Wolfgang Amadeus, accompanied by an Australian actor/Soprano as his wife, Constanze. Audiences will meet all the instruments in the ensemble along the way and discover some of Mozart’s best-known and beloved classical music.
Since its 2013 premiere at Sydney Opera House as part of their “Babies Proms” series, MEETING MOZART, directed by Eva Di Cesare (Monkey Baa’s Diary of a Wombat), has played two sold-out runs at Sydney Opera House, toured to Abu Dhabi International Arts Festival and four times to China, and returns to Sydney Opera House shortly. This production features a local string-quintet from The Paducah Symphony Orchestra, who perform alongside the two touring musicians.
