Independent Theatre is concluding its stellar 2022 season with a sumptuous production of the modern classic AMADEUS by Peter Shaffer. Tickets are now on sale - 9 performances only.
AMADEUS was first presented at the National Theatre, London in 1979, directed by Sir Peter Hall and starring Paul Scofield as Salieri, Simon Callow as Mozart and Felicity Kendal as Constanze. It took the world by storm and just a year later, it premiered on Broadway with Ian McKellen as Salieri, Tim Curry as Mozart and Jane Seymour as Constanze.
A spectacular 1984 film adaptation, directed by Milos Forman, starred F Murray Abraham and Tom Hulce and received eight Academy Awards (including the Academy Award for Best Picture). Today, it is widely considered to be one of the greatest films of all time.
AMADEUS is a fictional account of the lives of composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. Set in the year 1823, dying composer, Antonio Salieri, has a startling confession to make… he murdered his arch-rival, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Be transported back in time to the glittering court and musical world of Vienna as Independent Theatre stalwart David Roach stars as the envious Salieri, outraged that his relationship with God is put in jeopardy over his choice to bestow such musical genius upon the 'obscene child' Mozart.
Joining forces once again, as they did in Independent Theatre's 2018 production of Jon Marans' Old Wicked Songs, Roach's Salieri will be joined on stage by Independent Theatre's resident music man, Ben Francis, as Mozart.
Independent Theatre's production of AMADEUS opens at Star Theatres (145 Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Hilton) on Friday 25 November and runs till Saturday 3 December 2022. Tickets are available now.
