Lakeside Little Theatre, in affiliation with London’s National Theatre, presents National Theatre Live’s HD screening of its live production Amadeus, by Peter Shaffer.
"Amadeus is a stunning piece of theatre …" The Guardian
This is the first time that Peter Shaffer’s play has returned to the scene of its original triumph in 1979. Sadly, the author, who died in June at the age of 90, did not survive to see Michael Longhurst’s thrillingly fresh and imaginative revival of the piece.
Music. Power. Jealousy.
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.
"A note-perfect production. Fresh, vital and musically inventive." Daily Telegraph
After winning multiple Olivier and Tony Awards when it had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, Amadeus was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.
In its review of the production, the Independent says: "The production assembles and reassembles itself – a virtuosic whirl of bits of scenery (design by Chloe Lanford), fantastic singers, and excerpts from the operas that, in their aesthetic, become wittily and pointedly ahead of their time. Longhurst has let the air of today into Amadeus in bravura fashion."
