Where classical music is always the main character

After 30 years of working with orchestras and chamber groups, Platypus Theatre is the leader in offering high quality, fully produced concerts for any family or education series. Music and storylines are woven together with mesmerizing performances, colourful masks and costumes that draw the audience in and create an engaging musical experience for all.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 all our engagements for this year have been postponed. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
