The Composer is Dead
A Sydney Symphony Family Event

The whole orchestra is a suspect in this hilarious whodunit by Nathaniel Stookey and Lemony Snicket.

If you know musicians you know that they’re always up to no good, but did they kill the composer? Inspector Brendon Taylor interrogates the shifty string players, sneaky clarinets and those likely suspects in the brass. Or was it the conductor? He’s been murdering composers for years, after all.

No one leaves the Concert Hall until this mystery is solved!

With whimsical music by Nathaniel Stookey and deadpan wordplay by master of the macabre Lemony Snicket, The Composer is Dead is a hilarious introduction to the orchestra for the whole family.

Join us for our free Kids Activity Zone in the Sydney Opera House Northern Foyer an hour before and after the performance – where technology, music and play come together!

Suitable for children aged 5+ and their families.
