STORY

Le Mozart Noir is MHQ’s popular docudrama that resurrects the lost genius of Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a black composer famous in 18th century France.

The son of a slave, Saint-Georges overcame adversities of class, race and prejudice to become a musical star who would inspire Mozart. Tragically, his music and legacy were lost to history.

Featuring sumptuous period reenactments, never-before-seen archival materials and breathtaking performances by the world-renown Tafelmusik Orchestra, Le Mozart Noir is a classic of arts docudramas.
