The Other Mozart: the forgotten story of Mozart’s genius sister

Performed by Sylvia Milo

THE OTHER MOZART is an award-winning play telling the true, forgotten 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.

‘'Strikingly beautiful'’ - New York Times
''A gem of a show'.’ - The Stage (LONDON)
‘'Hauntingly beautiful'’ - LA Times

Created by Sylvia Milo, directed by Isaac Byrne, the monodrama is set in a stunning 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.

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, BAM, and the International Contemporary Ensemble) for the instruments Nannerl knew intimately, such as clavichords, music boxes, and bells, as well as teacups, fans, and other ordinary objects that might have captured her imagination.

With the opulent beauty of the dress, the sweet smell of perfume, and the clouds of dusting powder rising from the stage, THE OTHER MOZART is a multi-sensual experience that transports the audience into a world of outsized beauty and delight -- but also of overwhelming restrictions and prejudice, where, this other Mozart at last tells her story.
