    Our loyal alumnus, passionate musician (oboist) and pedagogue Wolfgang Billeb passed away in June 2024. In his memory, we would like to publish his memories of his studies at the Mozarteum University once again. The interview was conducted with Ilse Tiebert in 2014 on the occasion of the celebration with his fellow students to mark the 60th anniversary of his graduation from the Mozarteum in June 1954 as part of the "Narrated History" programme of the Art Archive Room.

    As a play, La Folle journée by the scandalous author Pierre Auguste Caron de Beaumarchais was banned in Vienna. However, Mozart and Da Ponte were able to suggest to Emperor Joseph II that the genre of opera would defuse the revolutionarily objectionable text and were thus commissioned to compose and write the libretto. The question of whether they did not in fact intensify the play in other ways is one that is posed anew in every production. With Le nozze di Figaro, Gernot Sahler and Alexander von Pfeil's opera class continued their Da Ponte cycle, which began with Così fan tutte in May 2023.
