Seemingly unknown to those outside the theatre world is Steve Aoki's forthcoming musical, Mozart² - The New Musical. Centered around the family of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Aoki and crew will tell a tale highlighting the struggles of both the legendary composer and his older sister, who, despite being a brilliant musician in her own right, struggled due to societal treatment of women in the 18th century.
According to a report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the musical is set to feature sounds from Aoki himself.
Moreover, Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark star Justin Matthew Sargent will be playing the role of Wolfgang alongside Ruby Lewis as his sister Nan. The official credits for Mozart² - The New Musical are as follows:
- Book & Lyrics by Tegan Summer
- Music by Steve Aoki and various EDM artists
- Original Score by Gregory Nabours
- Story by Summer & Colette Freedman
- Choreography by Dwight Rhoden & Desmond Richardson with Ferly Prado
