Synopsis

Sumptuous, epic, fleet, and urgent, Amadeus is about the mysterious nature of genius and the very human need to be remembered. Peter Shaffer’s imagined rivalry between perhaps the world’s most gifted and well-known composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and his far-less celebrated contemporary Antonio Salieri, invites us to question what gives our life’s work meaning, the measures we take to keep believing in our art when it no longer seems to believe in us, and the importance of artists to how people perceive and understand the world. The show will be staged site-specifically, drawing on the play’s inherent theatricality as we watch Salieri orchestrate his personal revenge manifesto with a strings-visible production.
