AMADEUS
by Peter Shaffer
directed by Kent Nicholson
May 6 - June 5, 2016

Segerstrom Stage

Swelling with the glorious music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, this psychological mystery has played to thunderous applause the world over. The New York Post raved that its Broadway premiere was “a total, iridescent triumph.” Vienna, 1781: the city of drama, intrigue and scandal is abuzz with the arrival of a young Mozart, who can write an opera a week but can’t control his exuberant giggling and notorious libido. Antonio Salieri—until now the royal court’s most lauded musician—recognizes Mozart’s genius, calling him “God’s magic flute.”  Pious, wicked, and soon to be guilt-ridden, Salieri tries everything to subvert the success of this enfant terrible.  Will that include murder?
