Tired of demonstrating his talents to a privileged elite, Mozart is brought to the bohemian city of Prague by Baron Saloka, a vain and self-obsessed aristocrat. On his arrival, Mozart is happy to have found the one place on earth where he feels his talent is appreciated and sets about creating a new opera. However, his unconventional presence soon unleashes aseries of dramatic and tragic events set off by a forbidden affair with young soprano Zuzanna. Overwhelmed by the tangled web of lust, violence and intrigue that surrounds him, Mozart finds inspiration to create the astonishing and dramatic piece of music that will become the operatic masterpiece Don Giovanni.
Critic Reviews For Interlude In Prague
- " [Aneurin Barnard] is a likeable enough Mozart, one a little more world-weary than that portrayed by Tom Hulce in Amadeus." – James Croot , Stuff.co.nz
- " Its tone veers wildly in operatic fashion from cute comedy to lusty romance to very dark violence. But the actors are terrific, and the film catches a clever sense of both the history and the music. " – Rich Cline , Contactmusic.com
- " The costumes are gorgeous, it's nicely shot and the operatic scenes are beautifully staged. The only bum note is the romance. " – Henry Fitzherbert , Daily Express (UK)
