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 and performed 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 ).
