Mozart's Magnificent Voyage

This popular adaption of two Classical Kids stories features Mozart’s young son, Karl, who longs to be taken from his boarding school to spend more time with his famous father. An old travelling trunk serves as a magic chest that reveals an incredible journey back in time to Mozart’s childhood and into the fantastic world of Mozart’s great opera The Magic Flute. Along the way, Karl comes to understand Mozart’s extraordinary life as a travelling prodigy, his pressures from family and fame, his passion for composing, and the common bonds they both share.

Audiences will enjoy twenty three excerpts of the master’s music, including themes from Mozart’s operas The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni, popular excerpts 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. The music is magically woven into the drama as two actors recreate historical incidents from the composer’s life. This mesmerizing concert and story performance is approximately 50 minutes in length and is an ideal addition to any children’s education program or family concert series. This program is recommended for audiences age six and up.

Synopsis

Mozart’s young son, Karl, feels isolated and neglected from his experiences at boarding school. Wolfgang is experiencing his own pressures from family and fame. Their struggles act as a catalyst for sharing adventure and understanding as they discover the common bonds they both share. Watch this story come to life as Karl and his father relive young Wolfgang’s meeting of the Queen of England and the Pope in Rome. From the Sistine Chapel to Carnivale there is much to learn much about the young prodigy’s extraordinary life.

But that’s not all! Discover the great master’s passion for composing as they embark on a magic journey into the world of The Magic Flute. Follow the Prince and Papageno as they try to rescue Princess Pamina from the Queen of the Night in Sarastro’s enchanted castle. And see Karl’s wish come true as his father takes him to a performance of the Magic Flute. This true father-son event confirms for Karl that he is well loved and that, although history will mark an early death for his father just two months later, he will always have him by his side through his timeless music. The original audio recordings of Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage and Mozart’s Magic Fantasy claim many top music, educational, and parenting awards. Based on these highly acclaimed and award-winning recordings, 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.
