The Other Mozart
The Other Mozart
About the Event
NC State LIVE is always on the lookout for the unexpected gem to spark wonder in our audiences. When we first saw Sylvia Milo’s award-winning The Other Mozart, we knew we had to bring it to our stage back in 2016, and we’re thrilled to revive it for our 50th. This delightful play is the true story of Nannerl Mozart, the sister of Amadeus – a prodigy, keyboard virtuoso and composer, who performed throughout Europe with her brother to equal acclaim, but her work and her story faded away, almost lost to history.
Described by The New York Times as “strikingly beautiful,” the one woman drama is set in and on a magnificent 18-foot dress, created to fill and spill over the entire stage. 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 Other Mozart is a multi-sensory experience that transports the audience into a world of outsized beauty and delight – but also of overwhelming restrictions and prejudice where, finally, this other Mozart tells her story.
