National Theatre of London: Amadeus (Live in HD)
Please Note the time of this screening has changed to 7:00 PM.
Music. Power. Jealousy. Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of
Thrones, NT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter
Shaffer’s iconic play, broadcast live from the National Theatre, and with live 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. 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.
