Peter Shaffer's fictionalized account of the relationship between composers Antonio Salieri & Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Antonio Salieri is an established composer in the court of the Austrian Emperor Joseph II. He has given himself to God so that he might become a great composer. Enter Mozart: a foul-mouthed young man that has something that Salieri doesn't ... genius.
Peter Shaffer’s 'Amadeus' takes the audience on a wild ride through genius, jealousy, and revenge of these two composers.
