Event Information

Duration: 1 hours 0 minutes

William’s school report is not good. But his tricks on the piano are so impressive, his teachers have picked him to play at the prestigious concert for Mozart’s birthday celebrations in the city of Salzburg.

Trouble is, he only does tricks.

Mozart, via the blues, tango and rock’n’roll (and a roll of gaffer tape). A chase through Salzburg. A moonlit haunted house. Enter Mozart, to swap genius wisdom for a glimpse of the future.

“Wonderfully engaging storytelling, lovely piano playing and delightful animations” – The National

“About the power of music to transcend time, and about how real genius always welcomes the new” – Joyce McMillan in The Scotsman

(Age 6+) Children over 18, come and be enchanted, with or without kids.
