Show Description:

Why does God grace some individuals with talent and genius, but render others dull and mediocre? This is the question that plagues Italian composer Antonio Salieri as he chases after fame and fortune in 18thand 19thcentury Vienna. Frustrated by his plight, Salieri becomes obsessed with ruining a young rival composer — Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart — in a deadly game of deceit and revenge. Musical history is re-orchestrated in Peter Shaffer’s Tony Award-winning tale of music, malice, and madness — Amadeus.
