Synopsis

Composer Antonio Salieri is a favoured artist in the court of Austrian emperor Joseph II, but he finds himself pushed aside in favour of a young Mozart. Salieri admires the younger maestro's music, but is incensed that someone so vulgar and obnoxious should be gifted with such talent, and as jealousy consumes him, he plots his rival's downfall. Extended cut of Milos Forman's period drama, adapted by Peter Shaffer from his own play and starring F Murray Abraham and Tom Hulce.
