Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage
Based on the highly acclaimed and award-winning recordings of Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage and Mozart’s Magic Fantasy, this theatrical symphony concert is an imaginative way to introduce young audiences and their families to the life and music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in a live performance venue.
Audiences will enjoy over twenty excerpts from some of Mozart’s most famous pieces as they magically weave in and out of the drama, including themes from The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni, popular selections from The Magic Flute, and some of his most important and engaging works such as Ave Verum, Symphony No. 1, Clarinet Quintet, and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.
Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage is approximately fifty minutes in length and recommended for audiences aged six and up.
In the story, Mozart’s young son Karl is furious at the prospect of returning to his boarding school, a place where he feels isolated from the excitement of the world and neglected by his family. As father and son sit by the side of the road waiting for a carriage that will return Karl to school, tales from Wolfgang’s childhood reveal that they have more in common than they could have imagined. Karl and his father relive young Wolfgang’s prodigious adventures, from meeting of the Queen of England, to the wonder of the Sistine Chapel, to celebrating Carnivale!
But that’s not all! Karl discovers the great master’s passion for composing as they embark on a magic journey into the world of The Magic Flute, joining the Prince and Papageno on their quest to rescue Princess Pamina from Sarastro’s enchanted castle! The adventure culminates in Wolfgang agreeing to allow Karl to attend a performance of The Magic Flute, and ultimately to stay home with the family and continue his schooling in Vienna.
