Little Matchstick Factory presents a solo show detailing the true story of Nannerl Mozart, the sister of Amadeus: a prodigy, keyboard virtuoso, and composer in her own right. More…
This one-woman show is based on facts, stories, and lines pulled directly from the Mozart family's letters. The production includes music composed by Amadeus Mozart and Marianna Martines (a female composer who inspired Nannerl), as well as original compositions for clavichords, music boxes, bells, teacups, fans, and other ordinary objects. The performance creates a multi-sensory experience and transports the audience into a world of beauty—but also of overwhelming restrictions and prejudice. This is where the other Mozart at last tells her story.
