However, his presence soon unleashes a series of dramatic and tragic events set off by a forbidden affair with a young soprano Zuzanna (Morfydd Clark, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies). Overwhelmed by the lust, violence and intrigue that surrounds him, Mozart finds inspiration to create the operatic masterpiece Don Giovanni.

[Aneurin Barnard] is a likeable enough Mozart, one a little more world-weary than that portrayed by Tom Hulce in Amadeus.

Empire (UK)


While it’s a handsome period drama with a strong cast, this fails to make Mozart’s life as characterful or exciting as its predecessor Amadeus. No manic laughter here.
