Amadeus


From the Playbill

 

“The three plays this summer all revolve around the theme of jealousy, yet each explores different aspects of this most human emotion. The Winter’s Tale is a strangely moving and beautiful story of a man who makes terrible mistakes while incorrectly accusing his wife of adultery, yet eventually achieves a sort of grace and forgiveness through the passage of time. Amadeus is Peter Shaffer’s exploration of professional envy, suffused with the godlike genius of Mozart’s music, a genius his nemesis Salieri cannot stand to lack. Much Ado About Nothing revolves around rumors of people both loving and not loving each other; Claudio’s quickness to believe in Hero’s infidelity drives the plot while Beatrice and Benedick’s slowness to admit their attraction to each other provides much of the comic juice. In all, these are three brilliant and beautiful stories we know you will enjoy.”

What the Critics Said


 

“As played by William Elsman, in deft changes from the elderly Salieri to the scheming Viennese court composer, the suspense holds up, the jealousy is gnawingly real and his intense listening makes Mozart's melodies sound new and revolutionary…. he derives riveting drama from the murderous envy and awe at Mozart's genius.”

Robert Hurwitt – S. F. Chronicle


 

 

“Those who know Amadeus the play only through the movie it inspired should consider snapping up a ticket; not only is the play’s script superior to the movie’s, the performances in this production are well worth catching….As the rival composer, Elsman and Hirshfield make an electrifying duet.”

David Templeton – The Bohemian
