Than in the nutshell is the story of Nannerl Mozart's life. Mozart's older sister she had a career of her own until little Wolfie came along and spoiled everything. Sitting on the laps of Kings, Queens and Emperors, simpering in his playpen as he composes a few symphonies, or the odd cantata and then polishing off an opera between games of stick ball and hop-scotch and everyone thinks he's the greatest.
Hell they even have this fancy statute to him in the Burg Park in Vienna - mind you they waited until he had been dead a while before they all of a sudden came over all proud of him.
So where's the statue to Nannerl? How do they remember her in Vienna?
But wait a minute there on the shelf just above - wouldn't you know he'd be on the upper shelves - what's this? Why its a sweet named after little Wolfie: Mozartkugeln.
