Unique multimedia Mozart project
In the heart of Vienna, at the very place where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed some of his most important works such as “Die Zauberflöte” (The Magic Flute) and the “Requiem” (Requiem) and where he died in 1791, a unique multimedia Mozart project is waiting to be discovered: MYTHOS MOZART. We invite you to immerse yourself in Mozart’s world using all your senses and learn about his music, the era he lived in, and many as-yet-unknown stories from his life in five different scenes and experience them in an immersive and interactive way!
MYTHOS MOZART in the STEFFL Department Store
MYTHOS MOZART covers 1,500 sqm across the entire basement of the STEFFL Department Store. The department store sees itself not only as a premium store for fashion, but also as a place that combines different worlds of experience from art and culture, social initiatives, and various services together in one building. With MYTHOS MOZART, STEFFL is offering its existing customers and new visitors a visually modern approach to Mozart – a new world of experience in a very special place. Mozart spent the last year of his life in the “Kleines Kayserhaus” at Rauhensteingasse 8 (now the back of STEFFL). Pietro di Galvagni – a successful Italian merchant, patron, art collector and Viennese resident by choice from 1819 – had the house replaced by a new building in 1848 and erected a bronze bust in Mozart’s memory, which can be seen today in the entrance area of MYTHOS MOZART. In 1896, Otto Wagner built an elegant “Metropolitan Clothing Palace” on Kärntner Straße for the Neumann family. Badly damaged in the war, it was rebuilt by the architect Carl Appel as the Neumann department store. After an eventful history, it’s now known as the STEFFL department store. When Milos Forman's film ‘Amadeus’ was released in 1984, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart became a “pop star” in mainstream society. The result was a vivid, close-up image of Mozart, which is still an important part of his charm today. 38 years later, at the very place where Mozart was immortalized in 1791, a new world of experience opens in honor of the genius. MYTHOS MOZART combines tradition and modernity, art and music, creativity and technology, and creates a new place for innovation and culture to bring Mozart to a wide audience in an unequaled way. In this way, MYTHOS MOZART offers the unique chance to see Mozart’s world with new eyes!
What to expect at MYTHOS MOZART Vienna
The scope of MYTHOS MOZART ranges from elaborately designed animations that take visitors back to the historical Vienna of 1791 to fantastic visual worlds made up of millions of pieces of information about Mozart and the sounds of Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) that he wrote at this location, all created by artificial intelligence. The combination of music, performing arts, architecture, and technology, as well as the elaborate spatial and media staging, make MYTHOS MOZART a unique and unforgettable experience throughout the world! In just under 60 minutes, visitors are immersed in Mozart’s world in five spaces: 1. REQUIEM - MOZART’S DEATH Experience the place where Mozart was immortalized 2. VIENNA – MOZART’S CITY Stroll through Mozart’s city of Vienna in 1791 3. WORLD MUSIC - MOZART’S EINE KLEINE NACHTMUSIK (A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC) Experience Mozart as world music 4. GENIUS - MOZART THE COMPOSER Compose the overture together with Mozart 5. DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE (THE MAGIC FLUTE) – MOZART FOREVER Mozart forever – that’s what the future sounds like anyway.
