Discover the thrilling story of opera with Jack, Megan and the time-travelling Trunk.
A school trip takes Jack and Megan to the Natural History Museum, London, where they are reunited with their old friend Trunk. Freeing him from an exhibit, they are whisked back to the Classical period (c. 1730-1820) and the cities of Salzburg and Paris. Here they learn all about this momentous era in musical history from the creators themselves.
Tasked with taking the music and stories of Windy Wolfie (Mozart, the penniless prodigy), Riotous Rossini(the king of the dining table) and the moody and resilient Bilious Beethoven back to the present, Jack
and Megan soon find themselves caught up in the return of the Queen of the Night, Mozart's most evil creation. Who will win the day and can Jack and Megan keep their heads off the block?
