David Helfgott is truly a living legend. As early as the age of five, David demonstrated a rare gift with his piano-playing ability. Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse around 1970 when Illness overtook his life for more than a decade.
Things finally started to change in the early ’80s. He met Gillian and within a year made a triumphant return to the world of classical piano.
In 1996, Shine, inspired by David’s life made a tremendous impact on audiences and his life.
David has now toured more than 37 countries to world acclaim and enchanted audiences.

David would love you to come and share three anniversaries with him on 29 October at the Opera House performance. It is twenty years since David gave his memorable 1996 record four sell-out recitals and the anniversary of Shine. An even longer anniversary is the 30 years since Andrew McKinnon started his long and successful career of touring David, and David would have so much joy in sharing these memorable occasions with you.
