An Afternoon at the Proms

Proms Website WO 1

 Presenting a lavish new program for 2017

“An Afternoon at the Proms - A Musical Spectacular”

The ACE Award winning "Best Production Show" in Australia.

Australia’s most acclaimed international violinist Ian Cooper is joined by opera stars, prima ballerinas, Australia’s current champion Pipe Band and the Blue Danube Orchestra to evoke the sheer exuberance of An afternoon At The Proms - A Musical Spectacular.

This stunning spectacular brings history’s most beloved music to life with masterpieces of the Viennese court and the works of Johann Strauss II. Enjoy selections from Bizet’s Carmen, The Sound of Music, The Merry Widow and Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, along with haunting renditions of Irish favourites, a salute to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the romance of the Hungarian Gypsy Orchestras. This musical and visual spectacular is set to raise the roof!

Our host, violinist Ian Cooper was commissioned to compose and perform at the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney Olympics - broadcast around the world to 2.85 billion viewers. That’s as big as any Australian performer gets.

An Afternoon at the Proms performance repertoire includes Rule Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory, The Can-Can & Radetzky March. Also Amazing Grace & Highland Cathedral with the combined Pipe Band and orchestra.

The producers have a fabulous team of performers who have all worked tirelessly to bring this production to Australian audiences.

5 Golden Fiddle Awards – 2 Mo Awards – 4 Ace Awards – 1 Platinum Aria Award
