The Other Mozart

Description

The Other Mozart introduces Maria Anna Walburga Ignatia Mozart, known as Nannerl, Wolfgang's older sister - prodigy, keyboard virtuoso and composer, forgotten in the mists of music history: until now. The Other Mozart is the award-winning creation of actress/playwright Sylvia Milo and the final don't-miss presentation of the season. The play features Milo in the title role, with music by Nannerl's composing inspiration, Marianna Martines, two contemporary composers, Nathan Davis and Phyllis Chen, as well as some from her better-known sibling. The centerpiece of the set is the 18-foot dress Milo wears in the role, topped by towering coif and wafting perfume, with dusting powder festooning the air. The Other Mozart lives again.
