One of the most acclaimed and popular productions of the 20th Century, Amadeus has been honored with 5 Tonys®, 8 Oscars®, and extended London and Broadway runs. The Wilma is thrilled to open the 2007/08 Season with this modern masterpiece in a version rewritten since its original Broadway and film successes. What happens when mediocrity recognizes itself in the face of genius? Especially when genius comes in the form of a potty-mouthed former child prodigy? This is the challenge posed as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, perhaps the greatest composer of all time, unknowingly becomes the battleground of envious court composer Antonio Salieri’s strife with God. From Peter Shaffer, the master storyteller behind Equus and Black Comedy (produced by the Wilma in 2000), Amadeus combines intrigue, suspense, comedy, and passion with some of the most stirring music ever written.
