Music. Power. Jealousy. Peter Shaffer’s multi award-winner premiered at the National Theatre in 1979 and went on to become the basis for Milos Forman’s memorable Academy Award winning movie.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world – and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God.
