Synopsis

Michael Longhurst directs this production of Peter Shaffer's critically acclaimed film about the fictionalised life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Adam Gillen). Told through the eyes of court composer Antonio Salieri (Lucien Msamati), the story follows the young, raucous musical prodigy Mozart as he arrives in Vienna looking for work. With the influence and power to make or break the young composer's career, Salieri is appalled to witness how Mozart conducts himself and sets his mind to the task of destroying him.
