For a night of Baroque splendour, don’t miss Breathtaking with Van Diemen’s Band.

South Melbourne, VIC 3205 Australia

TICKETS: Full $62 / Senior $48 / Concession* $35 / Under 30s* $25 This sonic spectacular for percussion and plural pianos includes four 20th century classics – works so dynamic they could have been written yesterday.
