Mozart had to deal with the problem of being an ordinary person and at the same time an extremely sensitive musician. Was it difficult to accept himself? Did he frighten himself when he realised his extraordinary talent? Was his humour helpful in accepting himself? In the search for answers to these questions, many themes can be discerned that can be symbolic and meaningful for any generation and at any time.
VR MozART takes the audience on a journey through space and time, using virtual reality glasses to immerse us in the emotional world of experience that W. A. Mozart's music opens up in all of us. In the English reading, the title VR MozART refers to the cultural adaptation that Mozart's work has experienced in European and also worldwide reception.

We all have our very own relationship to Mozart, and so the 360° film enables viewers to experience the intense impressions in a very personal way. Hangar-7 was chosen as the filming location for the aria "Geme la tortorella" (KV 196) because, as a place of movement and encounter, it enables the transformation of Mozart's music from classical Salzburg into the 21st century and, precisely through this contrast, offers viewers a visual approach to reinterpreting the music.
