The Other Mozart
Here Arts Center
145 6th Avenue
New York City
The Other Mozart is a play about Nannerl Mozart, the sister of Amadeus. A one-woman show written and performed by Sylvia Milo, directed by Isaac Byrne, it tells the true story of this prodigy, a keyboard virtuoso and composer, who as a child toured through all of Europe performing with her brother, to equal acclaim, but who faded away and left behind nothing of her own.
Using Nannerl's own letters and those of her family, the performance investigates how this female prodigy, this Mozart, faded from the world - and whether this loss was inevitable.
The show is set in, on, and underneath its costume: a stunning dress, eighteen feet in diameter, created to fill and spill over the entire stage.
