Hamner Theater to Present Imaginary Letters: Mozart Remembered

The Hamner Theater will present Imaginary Letters: Mozart Remembered, adapted by Peter Coy from the book by Michael White, onstage for six performances from Oct. 8 to 17.

The play explores the influence Mozart’s life had on his music, interweaving remembrances of Mozart told in letters written by his wife Constanzi, son Franz, cousin Anna and associates Salieri and Schikaneder. The play was originally commissioned for the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival, where it received its world premiere in July. Juilliard Professor Michael White has drawn upon a lifetime of research, teaching, listening, and, most of all, admiring and loving Mozart and his music to paint this poignant and entertaining portrait of the great composer.

The play is directed by Boomie Pedersen and features Jen Hoffman, Joel Jones and Jim Johnston.

Performances will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, October 8 & 9 and 15 & 16 with two Sunday matinees October 10 & 17 at 2 p.m. Admission is $10. Reservations are suggested, call (434) 361-1999.
