A Conversation with a Modern-Day Mozartian!

Tyson Vick's realization of Tamino and the Dragon in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute).
A few months ago, I discovered a new initiative illustrating Mozart's operas. At first glance on the site, I was immediately taken with the imagery and a bit text which let me know that this Tyson Vick fellow spoke my language: "...Mozart -- who is alive, visceral, engaging, thrilling and poignant and inspires me to up my game!" After learning more about his project, I believed in his vision, his passion, and the enthusiasm and energy that he invested into his craftsmanship. I especially admired how multi-faceted he was with the entire process as costume designer, photographer and visionary. It is an organic realization like this one which truly breathes new life into the Mozart history. The importance for each generation to recreate and reinterpret Mozart cannot be overstated.

I was inspired to contact Tyson with the intention of offering him a platform on my blog via interview and to share his work with others who may be resourceful in the next steps of his project. Instead of an interview, he suggested that we approach it with a conversational style instead. Since I'm always the interviewer and never the interviewee, this was something new for me, a fun and exciting prospect! I warned him that I was chatty when it came to Mozart, and I did rattle on for quite a long time, but the end result is a delightful dialogue between two people who connect with Mozart on a personal level and share a passion for re-imagining his art and life in the contemporary. Thank you, Tyson!
