The show is a comedic drama set in the New York classical music scene, and won the 2016 Golden Globe for best musical or comedy series. The other Golden Globe award went to its lead actor, Gael García Bernal, for best actor in a musical or comedy series. 

The reason for the $73 price tag? It was the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards. Amazon also offered a special $67 Prime promotion last September when it won five Emmy Awards for the show Transparent at the 67th annual Emmy awards. 

New members can sign-up for this limited-time Prime offer beginning on Friday night at 9 p.m. PT at www.amazon.com/MozartPrime.
