Mozart Reimagined by Tyson Vick will feature illustrations of Mozart’s “Bastien und Bastienne”, which is an early one-act German 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 book which accompanies these images:
“The play is a remake of a remake of an earlier opera where the leads are named Colin and Colette. It just goes to show that Hollywood’s love of remakes and reboots isn’t unique. In fact it’s been going on for hundreds of years!”

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.
