NATIONAL THEATRE: AMADEUS
NATIONAL THEATRE, LONDON

Amadeus by Peter Shaffer

Following its sell-out run in 2016/17, Amadeus returns to the Olivier in 2018.

Vienna: the music capital of the world.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives 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.

“Musicians are thrust centre stage to epic effect in Michael Longhurst’s revival” The Guardian

“Equal partner with the NT actors is Southbank Sinfonia, a hugely talented young ensemble whose performances are always theatrical.” The Independent

“These 21 musicians are the backbone of this production, scattering and re-forming throughout, like some sort of murmuration of musically gifted starlings.” The Times
