Words and Music brings together two icons of Australia's theatre and concert stages - the inimitable John Bell and extraordinary pianist Simon Tedeschi - in a sneak peek into life 'behind the curtain'.
Enjoying decades of celebrated performances between them, John and Simon take the audience into their confidence and share some wicked backstage stories from the Opera House to the Concert Hall, alongside some of their favourite pieces of poetry and music from recent years and their shows together, such as Bright Star, Enoch Arden and Echoes of the Jazz Age.
With notes (both literary and musical) from Mozart and Beethoven, Schubert, Keats, and Scott Fitzgerald, topped off with some sizzling jazz, don't miss the promise of a delightful and entertaining afternoon with two of Australia's best-loved artists.
Words and Music is a surprise package with something for everyone.
