One of the Vienna Boys Choirs goes delving into the life of Mozart. In the process they discover two incomplete works, which Mozart had decided not to finish. The music is heavenly, but the script – well, that’s a little disappointing. Suddenly they realise anyone can contribute something here – a look, or a gesture, or a joke. How did the Choir manage to turn all this into a finished piece? And what has an old opera got to do with the children of today? Come along to MuTh and find out!
To celebrate their 525th birthday, the Vienna Boys Choir have decided to treat themselves and their audience to this new opera production. Directed by Doug Fitch, it is based on Mozart’s operatic fragment “L‘oca del Cairo”.
