"There is no justice on earth, they say... but there is none in heaven either."
Before Milos Forman's film, before Peter Shaffer's play, there was Pushkin's Mozart and Salieri.
One of the Russian poet's greatest works, this brief "Little Tragedy" is a gem of world theatre. Exploring the turbulent relationship between two great composers, it is a story of mania, music, jealousy and murder. Co-organised by the Cambridge University Italian Society and the annual International Theatre Festival, this free English-language production is a celebration of Pushkin's work and life, an evening of performance, music with a special critical introduction.
"My dear friend, genius and villainy are two things incompatible. Don't you agree?"
