When Mozart is seven years old, he is invited by Prince Maximilian to perform in the Nymphenburg palace in Munich. Captivated by the lakes, waterfalls, and pavilions of the palace gardens he slips out after the concert to explore the intriguing park. Unexpectedly, he meets a girl who lives on the grounds of the palace and together they discover the wonders of the palace gardens. As they stroll through the park, Mozart reveals secrets about his life and music. Hélène Grimaud’s poetic interpretation of Mozart’s music combines with opera star Jennifer Larmore’s enchanting narration to create an exquisite midsummer night’s dream.
