Happiness is just a song away.

Herman and Rosie

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre as part of Something on Saturday – an Adelaide Symphony Orchestra production

Herman likes the smell of hot dogs and the sound of his oboe. Rosie likes the buzz of the city as she sings the sounds of jazz.

This is a tale about a big city: a summertime subway breeze, singing on the rooftops and toffees that stick to your teeth. Herman and Rosie share a special friendship over music and the sounds of the city.

Be enchanted as the ASO bring this delightful children’s story to life.


Make your own Herman head with sharp teeth and extra-long crocodile snout. Or a Rosie head with antlers and big doe eyes!
