The similarities between Mozart and Robert Burn explored in a new piece by Mary McCluskey.
Delve into a world of love, magic and music as we take you for a night out at Poosie Nansie’s Inn, favourite haunt of a certain Rabbie Burns…
Mixing storytelling and song this brand new show celebrates the lives of two much-loved men, Mozart and Burns, and the sometimes surprising similarities between them.
A talented cast of singers and instrumentalists blend traditional Burns folk tunes with music from some of Mozart’s most popular operas – from the magical and mystical in Tam O’Shanter and The Magic Flute to the heartfelt declarations of love in A Red, Red Rose and The Marriage of Figaro.
Fun and full of energy, dramatic and emotive, Amadeus & The Bard will bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye. So come in, pull up a chair and get ready for a night of great entertainment!
