The Other Mozart

An award-winning play based on the true story of the sister of Wolfgang Amadeus, Maria Anna (nicknamed Nannerl). A prodigy, keyboard virtuoso and composer who performed throughout Europe with her brother to equal acclaim, her work and her story faded away by the age of 18, lost to history in the shadow of her famous brother.

This innovative production, created by Sylvia Milo, imagines the life of the forgotten genius through her letters and features an original score with music box and toy piano, written by Nathan Davis and Phyllis Chen (who appears with her own show later in the Live Arts season with Lighting the Dark & Automatoys on March 13 and 14, 2020 ).

Read the Interview by Discover Jersey Arts about the creation of this incredible show.

Due to unforseen circumstances, the part of Nannerl, scheduled to be played by Sylvia Milo, will be performed by Sofi Lambert, an award-winning actress originally from Quebec City, Canada, based in NYC. Her theatre work includes: The Other Mozart (Off-Broadway at the Players Theatre in NYC, at the Ware Center in Lancaster, PA, in Saul Ste-Marie in Ontario Canada), Beatrice in John and Beatrice by Carole Frechette (Theater for the New City), Encounters (Center Stage, directed by Constance Fichet), Porcupine (Actors Fund Arts Center, directed by Sarah Bernhardt Prize recipient Leta Tremblay), La Dame aux Camélias (ArcLight Theater, directed by Gerard Cherqui), IF Mariah (The Flamboyant Theater, directed by John Doyle of Girl Walk), as well as numerous performances in Montreal at Fred Barry and Monument National.  She studied Meisner Technique with Jacqueline McClintock (Neighborhood Playhouse, NYC), Jack Waltzer (Actor’s Studio in London and New York), Danielle Fichaud in Montreal and with Austin Pendleton. Her television work includes: Destinée, Le Bye Bye de RBO (directed by Stephane Lapointe) and the popular series Tout sur Moi. Sofi’s film debut, Le Polygraphe, (with Maria de Medeirs) was directed by the world-renowned director and writer Robert Lepage.
