Mozart is arguably the most famous composer of all time, and opera his most important genre. Many of his operas and other works are rarely performed and little known despite their astonishing beauty and accomplishment. There is a real need to accessibly bring this music to wide and new audiences of all ages, and a celebration of this important cultural anniversary for London offers an ideal opportunity to explore and celebrate Mozart's life, music and world.


Performances, concerts and a new outreach programme will bring Mozart's early music to the widest possible audience and explore the cultural landscape of London in 1765. New partnerships with the Museum of London, Milton Court and the British Library will bring alive heritage and music, whilst a tour of a new production of J.C. Bach's 'Adriano in Siria' will bring this rarely performed but exquisite work to audiences in London, Manchester and Birmingham.
