A fiction for agents and keyboard instruments based on motifs by W. A. Mozart.
Modern structures of power are fundamentally based on secrets and concealment, espionage, disinformation and treachery. Surveillance and spying are indispensable instruments of governing, warfare and information retrieval. Intrigo Internazionale (KV 492) deals with intelligence services and their techniques of invading privacy. Johannes Müller, Philine Rinnert and Tobias Schwencke examine international intrigue and the hunt for a mysterious suitcase: are the romantic connections between the agents strictly related to business or are they means to an end to gain or block information, or to harden or change fronts? One absurd disclosure follows another and everyone is nothing less than a double agent for his own and higher cause.
