The Genius of Mozart - A Passion for the Stage

The first installment of this documentary series explored the development of Mozart's young genius as a child and young adult through the influence and guidance of his father.

Today's episode continues the musical development of the maestro during his middle years. As Mozart reached his twenties, he needed to abandon his reputation as a virtuoso child and make his mark as a mature and reputable composer. Inspired by the ideals of the Enlightenment, Mozart decided to revolutionize the world of opera, not simply by changing the rules of the trade but by inhabiting the genre from the inside and exploiting hitherto unrecognized possibilities before transforming it into a style the world had never seen.

Check out the epic climax of Mozart's Don Giovanni.
