    ‘I will be remembered! I will be remembered! - if not in fame, in infamy…’

    Respected composer Antonio Salieri’s unflinching devotion to God comes to an end when he meets a new rival by the name of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. How can a man so trivial, so infantile, so obscene, be blessed with divine talent? Transformed by envy and hatred, Salieri dedicates his life to ruining Mozart's.

    Accompanied by a live orchestra onstage, Peter Shaffer’s hard-hitting masterpiece dives into the gravest and most thrilling consequences of greatness, love, and the fear of mediocrity.
