“Imagine an eleven-year-old girl, performing the most difficult sonatas and concertos of the greatest composers, on the harpsichord or fortepiano, with precision, with incredible lightness, with impeccable taste. It was a source of wonder to many.” – Augsburger Intelligenz, May 19, 1763.
The Other Mozart is the true and untold story of Nannerl Mozart, the sister of Amadeus - prodigy, keyboard virtuoso, and composer - who performed throughout Europe with her brother, to equal acclaim, but her work and her story faded away, lost to history.
Created by Sylvia Milo, the monodrama is set in a stunning 18-foot dress (designed by Magdalena Dabrowska from the National Theater of Poland). Directed by Isaac Byrne, THE OTHER MOZART is based on facts, stories and lines pulled directly from the Mozart family's humorous and heartbreaking letters.
With the opulent beauty of the dress and hair design, the sweet smell of perfume, and the clouds of dusting powder rising from the stage, the performance creates a multi-sensual experience and transports the audience into a world of outsized beauty and delight -- but also of overwhelming restrictions and prejudice. There, in communion with the audience, this other Mozart at last tells her story.
The Other Mozart at Centenary Stage Company will be performed by Samantha Hoefer.
