MOZART TO BE DEPICTED AS A POLITICAL REBEL AND A REVOLUTIONARY IN A NEW MINI TV SERIES ON HIS LIFE!

     MOZART TV SERIES    
FROM DAS BOOT DIRECTOR
As Variety reports, Germany’s Goodfriends Filmproduktion and Austria’s Satel Film will produce a six episode TV series on MOZART to be directed by Andreas Prochaska. Set in the absolutist 18th century, it will
The series will shoot in authentic locations
tell a modern story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, not just the story of one of the most important musicians of mankind, but of a rebel and revolutionary who risked his life by openly opposing the nobility and the Emperor, Joseph II. Mozart was deeply affected by the ideas of the Enlightenment as they spread through Europe, climaxing in the French Revolution! In Austria, Joseph II initiated reforms in 1780, such as the abolition of serfdom, but these fell far short, with the nobility, after a furious push back against reform, retaining full ownership of land. In such a context, there was only one man who could stand up to the nobility and the Emperor, given he was so loved in Austria: Mozart. Satel Film, who recently had a hit with Freud series, will spend 19 million euro on this one.

    1. Yes, his Magic Flute and Don Giovanni actually have rebellious elements and attacks on nobles in them.

    1. That is just my illustration, did not want to put an old painting of his since I guess he will be younger in the series.

  4. LOL at Jax comparing the pic to Edward Scissorhands. I can see it. I do like your spin on the character. Much more interesting than what they'll probably cast.
