James Purefoy, Aneurin Barnard and Samantha Barks have joined the cast of John Stephenson’s “Interlude in Prague”. Brian Ashby penned the screenplay
Set in the Czech capital in 1787, the true story tale follows a few turbulent months in the short life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart which influenced the creation of his opera “Don Giovanni”. Mozart is brought to the Bohemian city by the vain aristocrat Baron Saloka who is also a psycopath and serial rapist.
Mozart sets about creating a new opera at the Nostitz Theater, but his unconventional presence soon unleashes a series of dramatic and tragic events including a love affair with a beautiful soprano and ultimately murder.
