All four gentlemen of the MozART group are well educated instrumentalists who graduated from prestigious Academies of Music in Warsaw and Łódz, but they decided to play classical music in a humorous way. The MozART group created a worldwide unique musical cabaret, where the music, not the words are the source of joy and laugh.

The MozART Group hails from Poland where there is a long tradition of story-telling through music and movement, with just a few words (performed here in English). Their theatrical virtuosity enables the quartet to communicate highly detailed plots without resorting to slapstick. Modern day scenarios like techno slip-ups and rock music groupies bring “Mozart” up to date.

Although the MozART Group is one of the most viewed quartets with over 10 million views on the internet, their live stage performance is a special experience of sheer delight and audience involvement. Here for one night only, you will be mad to miss Mozart Madness by the MozART Group!
