Uncommon Mozart consisted of two acts.
The first act was The Impresario, in a rewritten version set in the 1930s. The impresario was played by Andrew Newell; his secretary by Lucy Weber; the star tenor by Nathan Allen Barnes; the diva by Keri Costello; and the star-to-be by Alexandra Giesbers.
The second act consisted of scenes from unusual Mozart operas, including La Finta Semplice, Zaide, Lucio Silla, La Finta Giardiniera, and La Clemenza di Tito, plus an aria written for insertion in someone else's opera.
