It’s certainly not period appropriate to the 1890s!” Mauriello states. “That was exciting to me, to infuse this historical story with a very, very contemporary sound. And what also just happened is that, through that music we get this understanding of Oscar Wilde kind of as this pop star—not literally, but kind of as this grand performer who puts on these giant spectacle shows, which he did in his life.”
