Gloucester Productions is thrilled to present a 2024 staging of Peter Schaffer’s classic text AMADEUS
This Tony award winning play was first staged in 1979 and has had numerous productions presented all over the world since then. In addition, there was an Oscar award winning movie made in 1984.
This thrilling drama has all the elements: Suspense, comedy, rousing music and great characters.
In the court of the Austrian Emperor Joseph II, Antonio Salieri is the established composer. Enter the greatest musical symphonist of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realize his sole ambition, to be a great melodist. Mozart, however, is a foul-mouthed, graceless oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri’s envious grasp: Genius.
This is Salieri’s passionate telling of his act of vengeance in response to Mozart!
Starring Alan Committie as Salieri
