Synopsis


Adapting Mozart for outer space requires a specially equipped pianist.


William is the best piano player in the school, and only a dreamer gets to play the first piano on the moon.


But what happens when the real world brings things back down to earth?


In this engaging, playful and virtuousic performance, acclaimed pianist Will Pickvance tells the story of one boy's flight of fantasy all the way to the moon and back.


Chosen to represent the school at Mozart's birthday celebrations in Salzburg, William's ambition to perform for a big audience has suddenly come to life.


He should be excited … but doubt creeps in, and he questions his ability to play at all.


The audience is waiting. The celebration concert approaches.


But William may as well have been asked to play the piano on the moon.


This one-man-and-his-piano show features an unlikely birthday invitation, hot pursuits through the beautiful city of Salzburg, a magic cake, and Mozart himself!


From the acclaimed creator of Anatomy of the Piano, this is a summer treat for all the family not to be missed.
