Mozart’s music drifts, almost whimsically, through the wide front door while the building dances with the dancers. The brickwork flows with seeming abandon, quite unaware of need to arrange itself in regimented right angles and horizontal planes. The flat, singly and doubly curved surfaces create a warm safe place, carefully orchestrated, like an experienced schoolteacher with her class, while engaging everyone in the joy of lively ideas and the light touch of subtle nuances of mood. It’s here that the hand of the artists had a voice, where practicality and aesthetics were finely balanced.
