Mozart Reimagined, my beautiful photo book that has taken ten years to complete, is now available for purchase on Kickstarter! For 28 days you will be able to get the book for its lowest price!
On Sunday we had a launch party for the book! Many of the people who worked on the book came with their friends and family!
Setting up the room.
My friend Trevor came to help me set up some costumes and props that I built which were used in the book.
Trevor helps me set up by wearing Neptune’s mask from Idomeneo.
The party was held at the Rockin’ TJ Ranch, a large event center that usually puts on weddings!
My Der Schauspieldirektor costumes were on display.
Many of my costumes from the book were available to view.
My Don Giovanni costume from the cover of the book was on display.
It was a bit like museum displays!
My Amphitrite gown from my Idomeneo shoot.
The costumes each had their own pedestal for guests to walk around.
Tamiri’s gown from Il Re Pastore.
A few props were scattered at the feet of the mannequins.
Ilia’s costume from Idomeneo.
We had large TVs displaying the photos at the back of the room.
Judith’s costume with a severed head on display.
The event planner gave us a full 8 course Rococo feast, the style that would have been put on in Mozart’s day. There was a meat course from every type of game; beef, chicken, fish, ham.
We put on a feast for 55 people.
Many of the guests were overwhelmed by the sheer amount of food they were being given! Lol.

At the end of the night, we looked at the books together and I signed them.
Here are all the models holding the book open to one single page for our friend who couldn’t make it!
Our book is launched on Kickstarter, but there are only 28 days to get your copy! Help us bring this book to publication!
