From the sublime to the sublimely ridiculous! An opera in one short and irrevocable act. Composer Peter Schickele (in the guise of PDQ Bach) gets his hands on Mozart’s famous serenade Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music, K. 525), only to use it as the score for a miniature opera. Join in the fun as Mozart’s charming serenade becomes A Little Nightmare Music, the dream Mozart might have had on the night he died (and Salieri didn’t).
