TBC’s Musical Spotlight: “Mozart L’Opera Rock”

05 Jan

French Musical

I started the “musical spotlight” column a while back, but haven’t had anytime or inspiration to spotlight any new and interesting shows. Today I have something fantastic to introduce you to: Mozart L’Opera Rock. This French musical has been a huge hit and just closed their initial run in Paris on January 3rd, 2010. They are planning on taking it on tour in France and perform in cities like: Nice, Marseilles and Toulouse. It features an incredible fresh updated score that is based on Mozart’s thematic material from several of his more famous pieces. The plot surrounds Mozart’s life from about 17 to his death. (You can read the entire history lesson, I mean plot, here.)

It seems that this musical is a bit of a spectacle; they perform the production in stadiums (like a normal rock concert) and it appears to be selling out. (They do have 17,500 fans on Facebook.)  It also features Mikelangelo Loconte, Florent Mothe, Solal, Maeva Meline, Claire Perot and Melissa Mars. I’m absolutely loving it and would love to see a production of this! It looks fantastic. You can follow Mozart L’Opera Rock on Facebook or Twitter.

Here are some pictures from the production:

Listen to my three favorite songs:


“Vivre A En Crever”

“Le Bien Qui Fait Mal”

    And the choreography is FANTASTIC by someone named Dan Stewart from the USA. Can’t wait to see more of his stuff.

    I adore this music since i first saw Vivre A En Crever on mcm fr in australia and reaserched to find out it was a musical although i dont spealk french i was able to buy it from itunes when it finally became available. I really cant count the amount of times it has been played only to say i now sing it in french or near enough to. I would love to see this on stage or even if they bought out a dvd that was availble to purchace in australia or on the web. the clips from what ive seen is just spectacular. Mozart l opera rocks.

    Buscando enamorarme de alguna cancion francesa, actual y espectacular, encontre a Mozart L’Opera Rock, Creo que la imagen que han adoptado como grupo fuera de la representacion teatral es algo muy bueno, un gran espectaculo , que seria un gusto verlo en America

    Melissa Mars is amazing in this. She is really someone who should be in the US.
