ABOUT

After triumphant tours to the Middle East & Asia, Meeting Mozart returns to where it all began at the Sydney Opera House.


'Meeting Mozart' introduces young music lovers to a range of Mozart's music, from variations on 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' to his great orchestral pieces. Watch with delight as internationally renowned Australian pianist Simon Tedeschi assumes the persona of the musical wunderkind himself, in this delightful production direct from Sydney Opera House.

Audiences will meet all the instruments of the Meeting Mozart ensemble along the way, and discover some of our best-known and loved classical music – they will even have a chance to get close up after the show!

'Meeting Mozart' aims to instil a love and appreciation of music in young children and their families in an atmosphere that is fun, participatory and inclusive.
