Groupmuse presents Der Schauspieldirektor, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Written for Emperor Joseph of Austria’s living room, the piece is about a frazzled director dealing with egotistical singers who have to learn to compromise in order to make art happen. It features some of Mozart’s nicest tunes – about 25 minutes of music, all-told – and we’re cutting down the hours of German dialogue with just a few freshly-written/translated lines to move the plot along. Our music director and conductor will be Matthew Aucoin (the Wall Street Journal-christened Next Leonard Bernstein), with direction and new English dialogue by Ben Miller.
Music director and conductor: Matthew Aucoin
Director, producer, and new English dialogue: Ben Miller
Cast: Sharin Apostolou, Ben Bliss, and more TBA.
