We are now extending the amount to 4500€. Would you help us reach it?
Thanks a lot to all the patrons who have collaborated in our project.
We have reached our initial goal.
These extra 1000€ will pay part of:
- The rental of a big auditory or theater for the premier of our show to take place.
- The rental of a hall for the oficial presentation of "AMADEUS 1791" to take place.
If we obtain more than this second goal (4500€), the extra money will be destined to improve the publicity of our project.
Many thanks for helpìng us make a dream come true.
What do we wish?
We would like you to help us materialize an idea that was born while we were planning to prepare Mozart’s Requiem. As we started gathering information on the background of this great work we realized how interesting and mysterious was the last year of Mozart’s life. And then, we had an idea...
- Would it be possible to make a show out of it rather than just a concert?
- Would it be possible to link totally different compositions that Mozart wrote during the last year of his life?
- Could we not only enjoy his music but learn as well interesting details on the life and work of this great master?
- Could Mozart himself appear on the stage?
“Amadeus 1791” makes those possibilities a fact. We will be grateful to you if you help us making it possible.
"Amadeus 1791", the idea
Mozart cannot wait any longer... 220 years is too long to remain in a tomb without the possibility of witnessing any performances of his last work, not knowing if it was successful.
Without previous notice, his spirit materializes and joins the soloists, the orchestra, the choir and the conductor who are ready to start playing the Rèquiem.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in person, just arrived from "hereafter" especially for the occasion, will be our guide to the real facts that where the background of this composition.
From the stage, Mozart will talk to us in a dialog with the conductor, the musicians and the audience.
Mozart’s life is extensively documented. Including many surprising details. We will recreate the character based on historical documents such as his abundant correspondence, underlining this universal genius’s unique personality. We will observe his most intimate thoughts and feelings. What were Mozart’s thoughts on the death of his loved ones in the critical moments of his own life? We will be able to laugh, cry and be touched by his emotions.
The various parts of the Rèquiem performed by soloists, choir and orchestra will be linked with Mozart‘s performance. The music will be the sound-track of what he will be telling us, so that music and words alternatively convey us the message of the performance.
That is why the show includes other fragments of suitable works by Mozart, besides his Requiem.
The Rèquiem en Re minor is an exceptional masterpiece, intense and dramatic; specially considering the actual circumstances in which Mozart wrote it.
