The Mozart Experience

THE STORY

“The Mozart Experience” is the second of two programs created and performed by the Magic Circle Mime Co. for the Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center. A mischievous street musician finds herself thrust into the role of Mozart in this concert program for chamber orchestra. Presented by the conductor with opportunities and dilemmas similar to those faced by Mozart, the street musician slowly evolves into a modern-day Mozart. From extravagant youth to the appearance of the apocalyptic “mysterious stranger,” the audience experiences Mozart’s life as a musical, human adventure.
