Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of Thrones, NT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play Amadeus, captured live from the National Theatre, with orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia, with cinematic screenings set to take place around the country.
So what do you need to know about the play? As the name suggests, it follows Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, as he 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.
A special preview screening of the production is taking place at Dendy Newtown in Sydney on 26th April at 6pm and to celebrate we’ve got FIVE double passes to give away to the screening.
