The Other Mozart Presented by Lott Entertainment

The Other Mozart
Presented by Lott Entertainment Presents
8 p.m. January 7-9, 2016
at MATCH

There was another Mozart -- a forgotten genius: Nannerl, the sister of Amadeus. The Other Mozart is her true and untold story, coming to Houston January 7-9, 2016. Performances are at 8 p.m.

This Mozart was also a prodigy, a keyboard virtuoso and composer who performed throughout Europe with her brother to equal acclaim, but her work and her story faded away, lost to history.

“Imagine an eleven-year-old girl, performing the most difficult sonatas and concertos of the greatest composers, on the harpsichord or fortepiano, with precision, with incredible lightness, with impeccable taste. It was a source of wonder to many.” – Augsburger Intelligenz, May 19, 1763.

Hune Co. Presents: BLACKBIRD - The Living Room Series


BLACKBIRD
Only 20 audience members each night. A truly unique experience.
Nov. 19 - Dec. 5

BLACKBIRD is the reunion of Ray and Una; 15 years after their passionate affair when he was 40 and she was 12. The two are both confronted with their past when Una arrives unannounced at Ray's office.

Guilt, rage, and raw emotions run high as they recollect the shattering consequences of their relationship.

Without any moral judgments, the play never shies away from the brutal truth of this abandoned and unconventional love.
Tension is potent in the small confines of the Living Room. This is theatrical drama at its best.

*This production contains themes of sexual abuse and is for mature audiences.
