Description-

  • Ambition and jealousy—all set to music. Devout court composer Antonio Salieri plots against his rival, the dissolute but supremely talented Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. How far will Salieri go to achieve the fame that Mozart disregards?

    The 1981 Tony Award® winner for Best Play.

About the Author-

  • Peter Schaffer was an English playwright and screenwriter, best known for Tony Award-winning works Equus (Plymouth/Helen Hayes Theatres) and Amadeus, which also received a Drama Award for Outstanding New Play (Broadhurst Theatre). Other Broadway works include Lettice and Lovage and Black Comedy/White Lies (Ethel Barrymore Theatre), The Royal Hunt of the Sun (ANTA Playhouse), The Private Ear and The Public Eye (Morosco Theatre), and Finger Five Exercise (Music Box Theatre). Shaffer himself adapted a number of his plays into screenplays—including Amadeus, for which he received Academy, Golden Globe, and LAFCA Awards for Best Screenplay.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine This faithful audio adaptation of Paul Shaffer's Tony- and Academy Award-winning masterpiece immediately takes the listener to the heart of the story--the emotions. Whether it is Mozart's (James Callis) dizzying self-confidence, weighed down by his fear of losing his father's approval, or Constanze's (Jocelyn Towne) fear of losing her husband, or court composer Antonio Salieri's (a marvelous Michael Emerson) ability to express admiration, loathing, and doubt all in a single sentence--it's all there in the words. Emerson, especially, has a wonderful time teasing out the brooding, soaring, crazed flights of fancy in Salieri's monologues. AMADEUS is a superb, entertaining work, and this live audio version finds the history, humor, and humanity in every scene. B.P. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
