Opus: Classical music for everyone

Local musician, composer and creative innovator, Polo Piatti has a goal: to make classical music accessible to all, not only an elite, high earning percentage of the population. With this in mind, he and his team at The Opus Theatre put together affordable musical programmes for the people of this area with renowned musicians more used to performing at venues hosting thousands of people in the audience.
