Homelinks presents Mozart’s Magical Journey

Mozart’s Magical Journey with the inclusion of over 20 excerpts of the master’s music.

Audiences of all ages will be sure to enjoy this year’s Homelinks production of Mozart’s Magical Journey with the inclusion of over 20 excerpts of the master’s music, including themes from Mozart’s operas The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, The Magic Flute, and some of his most enduring and memorable works such as Ave Verum, Symphony No. 1, Clarinet Quintet, and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

The music is magically woven into the drama as the young Homelinks actors, aged 5 to 15 recreate historical events from the composer’s life.

Mozart’s young son, Karl, feels isolated at boarding school and burdened by being the son of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Wolfgang is experiencing his own pressures from fame and his son’s school antics. But when three children from Wolfgang’s opera show up in Karl’s boarding school room one night, they embark on an adventure through time and understanding as they all discover Wolfgang’s incredible musical talent and passion for composing.

Watch this adaptation of the story from the popular Classical Kids Audiobooks come to life as this community of homeschoolers relive young Wolfgang’s meeting with the Queen of England, are confronted by police officers in Rome, visit Karl’s own mother on her wedding day, and speak with the one and only Ludwig van Beethoven.

This fantastical voyage confirms for Karl that he is well loved and that future generations of musicians will always have his father by their side through the influence of his timeless music.

You can catch this one act, one hour show directed by Allison Girvan and Miriam Mason Martineau on Wednesday, June 3 or Thursday, June 4 at 4 p.m. at the Covenant Church (702 Stanley St.).

Admission is by donation.
