CARDIGAN’S Theatr Mwldan will be showing ‘In Search of Mozart’, a film which celebrates the life and work of the extraordinary composer.

The screening will take place of Monday, January 27 (6.45pm) and with rigorous analysis from musicologists and experts such as Jonathan Miller, Cliff Eisen, Nicholas Till, Bayan Northcott and the late Stanley Sadie, a new, vivid impression of the composer emerges.

It dispels the many common myths about Mozart’s genius, health, relationships, death and character to present a new image very different from Milos Forman’s Amadeus.

On its first release the film played in some cinemas for six months and remains many people’s – including classical musicians’ – favourite film on Mozart.

“Setting the record straight literally and figuratively, ‘In Search of Mozart’ is an adamantly linear, myth-busting stride through a prodigiously talented life,” writes The New York Times

“In the very best way, Grabsky's film is defiantly old-fashioned: no dramatised reconstructions, no psychobabble voiced by people in periwigs and corsets, no slops thrown out on cobbled streets for period effect, no scandal or sensationalism, just two hours of talking, singing, and playing heads,” says The Independent.

Tickets for the event cost £10 (£9 concessions) and are available now from the box office on 01239 621 200, online at or via the Mwldan app.
