New York Innovative Theatre Awards – Outstanding Solo Performance and Outstanding Original Music

 

 “Strikingly beautiful.” New York Times

 

“A gem of a show.” The Stage (London)

 

Behind the Mozart fame is an unknown Name

 

The Off-Broadway solo play The Other Mozart is telling the true, forgotten story of another Mozart genius, Nannerl Mozart, the sister of Amadeus.  The play is based on facts, stories and lines pulled directly from the Mozart family’s humorous and heartbreaking letters. Nannerl – a prodigy, keyboard virtuoso and composer, who performed throughout Europe with her brother to equal acclaim, but her musical virtuosity gives way to mounting despair when, upon reaching marriageable age, she was left at home and prohibited from performing due to the social constraints of 18th-century Europe.  Her work and story faded away, lost to history.

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.

The play had an Off-Broadway run in New York at HERE Arts Center, in London at St. James Theater, in Munich at the Pasinger Fabrik and was presented in Salzburg at the invitation of the Mozarteum Foundation (inside the Mozart’s Wohnhaus apartment) and in Vienna at the Mozarthaus Vienna (Wolfgang’s Domgasse home).  The monodrama continues being presented internationally, currently in four languages, performed by Sylvia Milo or another actress, with over 250 performances to date and well received by critics and audience.
