“Stupendous…total total theatre, and it’s wonderful.” — Andrzej Lukowski, Time Out London

“An epic piece of music theatre.” — Michael Billington, The Guardian

Music. Power. Jealousy. Lucian Msamati (LUTHER, GAME OF THRONES) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play with orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world — and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy, he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God. (Description courtesy of NT Live)
