After more than 250 performances around the world, this award-winning play is coming to Sault Ste Marie during Fringe North Friday in August. Sofi Lambert a Canadian actress now based in New York is bringing this majestic piece to Canada in English and in French.
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. THE OTHER MOZART is based on facts, stories and lines pulled directly from the Mozart family’s humorous and heartbreaking letters.
Directed by Isaac Byrne, THE OTHER MOZART is set in a stunning 18-foot dress. Along with music composed by her famous brother the original music was written for the play by Nathan Davis and Phyllis Chen – and was awarded New York Innovative Theater Award for Outstanding Original Music
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.
