THE OTHER MOZART Closes Tonight, 7/12
The Other Mozart is the true and untold 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, lost to history.
Set in and on a sweeping 18-foot dress (designed by Magdalena Dabrowska from the National Theater of Poland), and amidst the Enlightenment and a climate of great social change that still resonates today, the play is based on facts, stories and lines pulled directly from the Mozart family's humorous and heartbreaking letters. Along with music composed by her famous brother and Marianna Martines (a female composer who inspired Nannerl), original music was written for the play by Nathan Davis and Phyllis Chen (of Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival and the International Contemporary Ensemble) using clavichords, music boxes, bells, teacups, and fans.
THE OTHER MOZART, written and performed by Sylvia Milo and directed by Isaac Byrne began performances on Sunday, June 22 for a limited engagement through Saturday, July 12. The last performancewill take place tonight at 8:30 PM. The regular ticket price is $30. For tickets or more information, call OvationTix on 212-352-3101 or visit www.here.org.
