The Other Mozart 

When: Fri., Nov. 11, 8 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 12, 3 & 8 p.m. 2016

Virginia Woolf vividly imagined the life and fate of Shakespeare's hypothetical sister in A Room of One's Own. But when it comes to Mozart, no hypothesis is needed; the historical record is clear. By age eleven, his sister, Maria Anna, known as Nannerl, was a prodigy in her own right, "performing the most difficult sonatas and concertos of the greatest composers ... with precision ... incredible lightness, [and] impeccable taste," according to the papers of the day. But because of her gender, a different future lay in store for her. Playwright Sylvia Milo dug up the truth about the family's other musical genius in 2014. She performs it in Magdalena Dabrowska's outlandish combination costume-and-set-piece amid designer Joshua Rose's evocative lighting. —Byron Woods
