Using both original compositions along with existing Mozart music, Mozart, L'Opera Rock is the story of the famed composer’s life beginning at the age of 17. Upon it’s opening in France in 2009 the musical caused quite the stir thanks to dramatic set design, over 400 lavish costumes, and a riveting soundtrack featuring 12 pop-rock songs created especially for the stage. The beginning of the show starts off by showcasing the early struggles of Mozart, who at first fails to make a living during a time when German and Austrian operas and music were not widely respected. From there, the play takes theater-goers on a journey through Mozart’s path to becoming one of the world’s most well-known musical composers, all the way up to his untimely death at age 35.
