Michael Longhurst’s acclaimed production of Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus returns to the Olivier theatre this January following a sell-out run of performances last year.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy it. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music and, ultimately, with God.
Amadeus features live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia with Adam Gillen and Lucian Msamati reprising their roles of Mozart and Salieri.
Amadeus is at The National Theatre from 11th January.
