Mozart and Salieri

Mozart and Salieri

Following a successful run in London and Vienna, Time Zone Theatre’s immersive production will be part of Grimeborn 2016 at the Arcola Theatre. Rismky-Korsakov’s rarely performed two-hander is a character study, it is a close-up of Salieri and his tormented mind. He’s not just the villain in this story, we see a generous man committed to the art who praises Mozart’s work, but is torn between admiration for his fellow composer and his own jealousy.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

About Mozart and Salieri:

“Villainy and genius can never be compatible?“ asks Salieri, after he bid Mozart farewell. The opera follows the apocryphal legend that Antonio Salieri poisoned Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart out of jealousy over his talent. Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908) used the short play *Mozart and Salieri* by Alexander Pushkin as libretto for his opera, which also served Peter Shaffer as inspiration to his famous stage play and film Amadeus.
