The Secret Life of Great Composers

Southern Cross Soloists join with Homonculus Theatre Company to present The Secret Life of Great Composers. Sir Theodore Electra Smyth, classical musical specialist, hand-bell soloist, and aspiring composer, is on a mission: to share the human beauty, power and enigmatic joy of classical composers' music and their lives with the public, by any means necessary! Jumping from Bach to Mozart to Beethoven to Berlioz to Satie to Puccini and Wagner, the audience is taken on a whimsically comical journey ultimately ending in one of Theodore's compositions being played by the musicians and the audience.
