Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg in 1756. He was a musical prodigy and started performing in public at the age of six. Over the years, he composed an extensive oeuvre that included sonatas, symphonies and operas.
Mozart spent his most creative and successful years in Vienna, where he tried to establish himself as a freelance composer. He described the city as “the best place in the world for my profession”. By the way, the Mozarthaus Vienna is the only remaining Viennese residence of Mozart. Now, it is a museum which shows his life and work in Vienna.
At the time of his death, Mozart was considered one of the greatest composers of all time. Until today, he is known across the world.
Mozart – the Musical
The Austrian musical “Mozart! Das Musical” deals with the life of the famous composer. It shows his development as musician and person. It is a drama about growing up.
The original production premiered in Vienna in 1999, where it ran for 500 performances. After its last performance in 2001, the musical has been performed in different countries, for example Japan and South Korea. It was a great success, as 1.9 million people worldwide saw the show.
Now, the musical is back in Vienna! This current version is new and expanded. A love duet between Mozart und Constanze was added to the musical. For the first time, the audience will hear this song on its opening night this week. If you are interested in seeing the show, you can buy a ticket at the Raimund Theater.
So, are you going to see the musical? Or have you already seen it?
