Mozart Reimagined by Tyson Vick will feature four illustrations of Mozart’s “Apollo et Hyacinthus”, which is a Latin opera by a child Mozart.
Mozart Reimagined showcases nearly 100 photos that bring to life Mozart’s operas through photography. I spent a decade building props and sets, meeting models and photographing across the country to showcase what Mozart’s music has meant to me. The book also features essays written about each opera from my own unique perspective. The book humorously points out plot-holes, gives insight into past and present performances, recites a little bit of History and overflows with my own passion for the music of Mozart.
Here’s an excerpt from the chapter accompanying these images:
“The strangest thing to note about Apollo et Hyacinthus, is that, although numerous people are murdered, neither the characters nor the music seem to much notice this fact. Everything just goes on willy-nilly as if nothing happened. “

The photos feature my returning friend Jacob Federspiel-Smith as well as some other models.
I’m going to be giving you a preview of photos from every chapter of Mozart Reimagined over the next month, and then it will be time for pre-orders. I will be launching pre-orders on Kickstarter on September 14th, 2015! Until then, I wanted to give you a glimpse of some of the photos and excerpts from the book so you can see what’s in store! Subscribe to the blog for every update, or check back on September 14th for the launch of the book.
