Tormented to an early grave – poisoned perhaps – by his insecure contemporary. Did the brilliant composer Mozart really fall by the jealous hand of Antonio Salieri? Opus Orchestra presents 18th Century Unwrapped, where Music Director Peter Walls will unpack the musical content and provide fascinating insight for the audience.

Enjoy delightful Viennese gems, including Salieri’s witty “Name Day” Sinfonia, and Haydn’s magnificent Oxford symphony. Distinguished and much-loved New Zealand pianist, Diedre Irons (ONZM), showcases her brilliance in Mozart’s masterly Piano Concerto in Eb. Reflect with the poignant and deeply expressive Music for Jonny, written by acclaimed New Zealand composer, Ross Harris.

Drama, beauty, intrigue, grace and wildfire – something to inspire everyone. So was Salieri a scheming murderer? Come along and find out!
