Amadeus [Fall 2011]

Norwood High School Drama presents Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus

Running November 17, 18, 19, 20 at 7pm inaugurating Norwood High School’s new Auditorium.

Inspired by the relationship between composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his rival Antonio Salieri, Amadeus is a tale of passion, genius, and jealousy set in 18th century Vienna. The winner of the Tony Award for best play and the Oscar for Best Picture, Peter Shaffer’s monumental play is part melodrama, part history, part imaginative speculation.

Salieri, a mediocre but passionate and devout court composer comes to detest the young genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who seems to effortlessly compose flawless masterpieces while finding the time to womanise and behave outrageously. Salieri vows to destroy “this obscene child” by any means necessary.
