AMADEUS. By Peter Shaffer. May 2-17, 2020. Adapted into the 1984 Academy Award winning Best Picture, this celebrated play is a riveting exploration of jealousy, ambition, and madness. Antonio Salieri believes that his success as a composer in the royal court is the result of divine favor… until he encounters Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a profane man whose sublime talent makes Salieri’s own gifts pale in comparison. Determined to elevate his own stature, Salieri plots revenge. Two-act play with mature content and recorded music, appropriate for teens and up.
