Figaro230 Exhibit Displayed at Mozarthaus



To celebrate the 230th anniversary year of Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro in 2016, Sherry created the Figaro230 initiative to collect and display celebratory regards from Mozart's fans all over the world at the Mozarthaus Vienna. The Mozarthaus, now a museum, was Mozart's largest and most opulent apartment. Although he had several addresses in Vienna, Mozart lived at Domgasse 5 longer than he did at any other residence, and it's the only one that survives today. Mozart composed Figaro in 1786 while living there, a time period (1784-1787) representing some of his most productive, popular and prosperous years in the city. Learn more.
