’As long as there was music he was prepared to cope in any world.’
'Mr Mozart Wakes Up' tells the charming, original tale of a genius on a trip through time – a divine jest: the previous evening, the fifth of December, he had been on his deathbed. Now Wolfgang wakes up in an unfamiliar room wearing strange clothes. He can’t explain his bizarre surroundings: light without candles, music without an orchestra, warmth without fire and shiny pipes emitting water. Is he in a forecourt of hell or in paradise? Gradually, Wolfgang comes to realise that he is not in the year 1791 any more. He can only explain the monstrosity of his trip to 2006 with a divine mission: he must complete his requiem.
