The Independent Theatre is a hidden gem in North Sydney. It has survived fire, the effects of time and lockdowns to host Live at The Independent: Concert and Cake Sundays throughout 2022. The year is coming to a close but there is still one more performance to take place in the heritage-listed venue, and it’s going to be a sweet one for adults and children alike.
With complimentary cake from French Patisserie Madame and Yves, this live music experience is a real treat where audiences can also get involved. Children five and under can also attend free of charge!
Current concertmaster of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and former lead of the World Orchestra for Peace Andrew Haveron joins Australian classical pianist Simon Tedeschi for the musical adaptation of “Ferdinand the Bull”, the charming picture book by Munro Leaf that was banned by both Hitler and Franco.
If you’ve seen the 2017 film adaptation, then you know that the story is about a young bull that has no desire to bullfight and would prefer to smell flowers while sitting in the shadow of a cork oak. It’s an adventure-packed story that entertains both adults and children alike.
The program will be rounded out with Spanish dances by De Falla and a number of Bartok’s Romanian Folk dances as well as other folk tales for a magical experience perfect for young and old alike.
When: Sunday 6 November, 3pm
Live at Yours is not only making classical music relevant once again, but it is also making it accessible to old and new fans alike with concerts at the Independent Theatre and other venues across the city.
While Concert and Cake Sundays Premium Tickets guarantee the best seats possible at the Independent Theatre, there are also tickets for patrons under the age of 30 at a special price. And by special, they’re almost half-price.
Cakes are complimentary.
