Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The most celebrated composer of his age. Once a child prodigy and now – in 1781, aged 25 and newly arrived in Vienna at the court of Emperor Joseph II – an infantile, potty-mouthed genius!

To court composer Antonio Salieri, this ‘creature’, blessed with a remarkable gift for music, is an abomination. A mockery of all he has ever believed in. An asinine joke played upon him by a cruel God, and a monstrosity that must be destroyed.

Amadeus: one of the great plays of the 20th Century, is Peter Shaffer’s masterpiece, a majestic exploration of rivalry, jealousy and revenge. First seen at London’s National Theatre, before opening in triumph on Broadway, it later became a hugely successful film, winning eight Academy Awards.
