“ … and the best place in the world for my profession”, is the way Mozart described Vienna to his father.
The tour of the second floor looks at Mozart’s main musical and composer colleagues in Vienna and his cooperation with the librettist Lorenzo da Ponte in “Le Nozze di Figaro” and “Don Giovanni”.
These rooms have original stucco ceilings and wall paintings that show how the apartment must have been decorated in Mozart’s time. Mozart’s “Requiem” and the end of his life are also covered on this floor, along with a multimedia theatre installation “The Magic Flute – Divine Laughter”, which features three-dimensional collages of scenes from “The Magic Flute”. The "Figaro Parallelo" media installation provides an overview of Figaro productions from leading international opera houses and the diffrent approaches by directors.
