Mozart on Banská Bystrica stage

THE NEW music, drama, and dance performance, Divine Amadeus, which premiered at the State Opera in Banská Bystrica on October 24, will be shown again on November 8.
Written, choreographed, and directed by Dana Dinková, the one-act work captures the life of famous Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The script, inspired by legends about two music composers who could not write works with the same "divine spark" as Mozart's, uncovers secret parts of Mozart's life, such as his boisterous love affairs.

In her work Dinková combined various art genres, creating a performance for opera viewers as well as for lovers of dance and theatre. Dinková originally thought of creating only a dance-drama piece, but after finding dance skills in the opera's soloist, Šimon Svitok, who plays Mozart, she added the singing and musical parts to the work.

"The main character must know how to sing, play, and dance," she said. "I am happy that I found such an all-purpose person in Banská Bystrica, because if a dancer received this role, it would be only a dance [piece]. Through this, [the piece] has moved in a completely different direction, and that's good."
