Mozart Moves! Sieben Dramolette


Mozart Moves! Seven Short Plays

Seven short plays by Martha Bátiz, John von Düffel, Tom Holloway, Shlomo Moskovitz, Guadalupe Nettel, Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt, Jorge Volpi inspired by divertimenti by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Closely-written sheets with divertimenti by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and empty pages for new texts by Mexican-Canadian author Martha Bátiz, German dramatist John von Düffel, Australian playwright Tom Holloway, Israeli author Shlomo Moskovitz, Mexican poet Guadalupe Nettel, French-Belgian dramatist and film director Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt and Mexican reformer of literature Jorge Volpi – this was the starting point chosen by Mozart Week Director Rolando Villazón and Salzburg State Theatre Director Carl Philip von Maldeghem for a new cooperation between their institutions.

Following the extraordinary ballet gala “Mozart Moves!” of January 2019, the great composer’s work is now moving an international group of highly renowned literary artists who are writing original texts for the actors’ ensemble of the Salzburg State theatre. They could choose freely from Mozart’s divertimenti as inspiration for their short plays. In each case, the music of the respective divertimento will be presented and then the actors’ ensemble will perform the text. Head of the ballet division Reginaldo Oliveira and members of the ballet ensemble will add dance to this manifold, Mozart-inspired encounter of the arts.
