The pioneering Italian creative team that created the acclaimed Immersive Van Gogh returns with Mozart Immersive: The Soul of a Genius, opening on March 10. Chicago is the city chosen to receive the world premiere of Mozart Immersive.
Mozart Immersive stands out from previous Lighthouse Immersive productions in that Mozart’s
ingenious compositions are the primary focus; with captivating visuals built around the auditory experience. The creative team used AI image generation as inspiration to design original
dream-like visuals inspired by 18th century destinations that Mozart experienced.
Audiences will be surrounded by bustling city streets, ornate royal auditoriums and lavish paintings, in addition to otherworldly dreamscapes featuring fantastical lucid imagery, all accompanied by some of
Mozart’s most beloved melodies performed by the acclaimed, Grammy-nominated Kaunas City
Symphony Orchestra under the baton of world-renowned Maestro Constantine Orbelian: a
four-time Grammy Award nominee in his own right who is also the music director and principal
conductor for the New York City Opera.
Also setting Mozart Immersive apart from previous Lighthouse offerings is recorded footage of
actors presented alongside the animation. The legendary dancer and actor Mikhail
Baryshnikov assumes the heart-rending role of Mozart’s father, Leopold, who would launch
Mozart’s early career but became estranged from his son later in life” “I am delighted to have the opportunity to portray one of the most obvious, albeit controversial, figures in Mozart’s life in this truly distinctive immersive presentation,” said Baryshnikov.
“In order to fully capture the genius of Mozart’s oeuvre of work, we brought together top-level
talent from the world of classical music for the score, but we also wanted to use groundbreaking
AI technology to help create the projection’s beautiful and inventive imagery” said Svetlana
Dvoretsky, co-founder of Lighthouse Immersive and producer of Mozart Immersive. “With the
help of Maestro Constantine Orbelian, we have created a magnificent, melodic soundscape to
accompany the visuals crafted by our creative team. The resulting piece is a highly
sophisticated and thrilling confluence of brilliant music and stunning visuals that is elevated by
Mikhail Baryshnikov’s portrayal of Mozart’s father.”
Featured in the work are some of Mozart’s best loved compositions, including Symphony No.
40, Requiem, Turkish March, Ave Verum Corpus and a selection of works from Mozart’s
acclaimed operas, The Marriage of Figaro and The Magic Flute, among other pieces.
