"...from the ordinary he created legends"

Genius and jealousy collide in the opulent salons and opera houses of 18th-century Vienna. When an impulsive and eccentric prodigy outshines an envious, God-fearing composer consumed by bitterness, theatrical fireworks emerge. The mediocre Salieri will do everything in his power to destroy his musical rival.

Winner of 5 Tony Awards®, including Best Play.

“It fills the theatre with that mocking heavenly silence that is the overwhelming terror of life” – New York Times

“A near masterpiece” – The Times (London)
