Seattle Public Theater presents Amadeus by Peter Shaffer
January 29 – February 21, 2016 (preview on January 28)
Directed by Shana Bestock
In 18th-century Vienna, music was the currency of power and court composer Antonio Salieri was the toast of the town. That is, until a young prodigy by the name of Mozart came on the scene. Reeling from the realization of his own mediocrity in the face of true genius, Salieri swore vengeance on the God that gave Mozart his breathtaking talent. Winner of seven Tony Awards including, Best Play, Amadeus explodes with musical masterpieces and richness of language, juxtaposing the petty world of human excess, indulgence and jealousy with the transcendent achievements of human artistry, passion, and genius. Don’t miss Seattle Public Theater’s daring reimagining of the acclaimed drama the Washington Post called “riveting. . . thrilling. . . with high drama and delightful laughter.”
Evening shows at 7:30 pm, Sunday matinees at 2 pm. More details see www.seattlepublictheater.org
