Stephen Oliver’s completion of Mozart’s unfinished opera The Goose of Cairo will be freshly hatched in time for its UK premiere by the London Mozart Players at St John’s Smith Square on 14th April.

The London Mozart Players will be joined on stage for The Goose of Cairo by a giant golden goose that will be suspended above the stage at St John’s Smith Square. Our Marketing Manager has been busy hatching this golden creature for some weeks, but we think the LMP goose needs a name!

Just in time for Easter, we want you to name the golden goose for your chance to win a pair of golden VIP tickets to the concert and half a dozen fresh golden chocolate eggs from Fortnum & Mason.

We’re looking for an ingenious name that is fitting for a magical golden goose of Cairo. For inspiration, read the history of this eggs-tradinary opera and the story of the fabled golden goose on our news & blog page.


Enter your suggestions via Twitter using the hashtag #LMPgoose and tagging in @mozartplayers, alternatively visit our Facebook page, where you can submit your entry by commenting on the post with your name suggestion.

The lucky winner will be given a box of golden praline filled Fortnum & Mason chocolate eggs and a pair of golden tickets to the performance of The Goose of Cairo on Thursday 14th April 2016. Golden tickets include an invite to the LMP’s drink reception after the concert in the Crypt of St John’s Smith Square and the opportunity to meet the soloists and musicians involved in the performance.

The deadline for entries is midnight on Sunday 27th March 2016, any entries entered after this date will not be counted (please see full terms and conditions below). The winner will be announced on the LMP’s social media channels on Wednesday 30th March 2016.
