Presented by His Majesty's Theatre
Performed by David Scheel

A runaway success in London’s West End, at successive Edinburgh Festivals, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and right across the USA, this is a hilarious send-up of classical music, which has established Australian pianist, David Scheel, as the successor to the legendary Victor Borge. 

Beautiful music, and musical fun performed in so many accents/voices that David has also been compared to the late Robin Williams, and Peter Ustinov.

Hear a familiar tune played in the styles of the old masters + an i-Pod; two famous pieces played simultaneously, one with the right hand, one with the left, plus his “translation” of the lyrics of 'Waltzing Matilda', already a comedy classic.

Come early to explore the Museum of Performing Arts exhibits throughout the venue, showcasing the rich history of the performing arts.

Want to make your experience even more special? Upgrade to enjoy a delightful Devonshire Tea on the newly restored balconies.

As funny as any, wittier than most, and, uniquely, a concert pianist of international stature...He stands alone, in a class of his own” - BBC Arts Review

The only show in town that can satisfy lovers of classical music and comedy alike” - San Francisco Chronicle
