Tickets $8 at www.nwfilm.org/nowshowing

Featuring Renèe Fleming, Magdalena Kozenà and a host of others, this ambitious documentary, filmed in ten countries, is an engaging biographical portrait of Mozart and a master class in his collected works.  Grabsky traces the composer's life through his music and his extensive personal correspondence, and includes performances by the greatest musicians of our time and commentary by some of the world's most renowned musical scholars.  From K1a to K626 (Requiem), over 80 works are featured in chronological order, revealing striking parallels between the music and the composer's experiences.  Though the music takes center stage, his letters reveal an extraordinary voice which rings out on a human level, full of joy, passion, pain, rage, bawdy humor and great sensitivity.  (120 min) Co-sponsored by the Portland Opera, which is presenting Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, February 5, 7, 11 and 13.
