BFF18 Interlude in Prague23rd October, 2018
Prague, 1787. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Aneurin Barnard, War and Peace 2016) spends a few turbulent months escaping the frustrating, privileged elite of Vienna, where his music served only to please kings, instead offering his talents to the broader public.
However his unconventional presence in Prague soon unleashes a series of dramatic and tragic events set off by a forbidden affair with young soprano Zuzanna (rising star Morfydd Clark, Love & Friendship 2016), who is to marry the vain and jealous Baron Saloka. Overwhelmed by the tangled web of violence and intrigue that surrounds him and with his mind affected, Mozart creates the astonishing music and drama that becomes “Don Giovanni”.
Set to the music of Mozart, BAFTA nominated director John Stephenson’s Interlude in Prague is a powerful period thriller that captures the splendour of 18th-century Baroque theatre. A love story of epic proportions, the characters, the passions and heartbreak combine to become a glorious heart-in-mouth knockout.
“Interlude in Prague…[blends] the sumptuous passion of his music with a visually stunning aesthetic that revitalises Mozart in the modern mind.” – The Upcoming
