The Other Mozart is the true, untold story of Nannerl Mozart – sister of Amadeus. Written by Sylvia Milo, this award-winning drama showcases Nannerl as a prodigy, keyboard virtuoso and composer who performed throughout Europe with her brother to equal acclaim. Yet, Nannerl’s work and her story faded away… lost to history. Described by The New York Times as “strikingly beautiful,” this one-woman drama is based on stories and comments pulled directly from the Mozart family’s humorous as well as heartbreaking letters. This production of The Other Mozart not only is a multi-sensual experience that will transport the audience into a world of outsized beauty and delight – but also into a world of overwhelming restrictions and prejudice where – finally – this other Mozart tells her story. The performance is sponsored in part by The Trube Foundation, Galveston Musical Club and William J. and Merri S. Edwards Charitable Gift Fund.
