Situation

Classical Opera's pioneering MOZART 250 project provides an accessible introduction to classical music. In experiencing our world-class performances and recordings our audiences will find enjoyment in Mozart’s music and discover previously unknown works. Our work with young artists will help launch the careers of the next generation of opera stars. By introducing children to classical music (and opera) at a young age, we hope to demonstrate that it is an exciting, relevant and vibrant art form.

Solution

MOZART 250 presents a rare opportunity to tell the story of Mozart and his contemporaries (including Haydn and J.C. Bach) through performances, recordings, our website and outreach work, breathing new life into their music by exploring the context in which it was composed and premièred. We hope that this far-reaching project will act as a stepping stone to a lasting appreciation of classical music for audiences of all ages, including those who do not currently access or enjoy classical music.
