Australian Chamber Orchestra

Based on the book written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Julie Vivas

There was once a small boy called Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge and his house was next door to an old people’s home. He knew all the people who lived there, but his favourite person of all was Miss Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper. When Wilfrid finds out that Nancy has lost her memory, he sets out to find out what a memory is…

This delightful production, based on the poignant picture book by Mem Fox and Julie Vivas and directed by Sandra Eldridge, will weave together captivating storytelling with mesmerising music in an immersive and intimate performance. Featuring a new score by award-winning composer Paul Stanhope performed by a string quartet from the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge is the perfect introduction to live classical music, guaranteed to enchant audiences both young and old.

Audiences are invited to stay after the performance for a chance to meet the musicians and learn more about their instruments.

Recommended for ages 3+
