by Peter Shaffer

Directed by Kathleen Tissot

Originally Produced by Strollers Theatre in 1997

In the court of the Austrian Emperor Josef, Antonio Salieri is the established composer. Enter the greatest musical genius of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realize his sole ambition to be a great composer. Mozart is a foul-mouthed, graceless oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri’s envious grasp: Genius.

The Isthmus review by Gwendolyn Rice highlights the best of the production.

“So, is any of this fantastic tale from musical history true? Scholars say probably not. Does it make a good story? Yes, and one that is beautifully rendered here.”

WORT interviews Director Kathleen Tissot and actors Matthew Korda and Sean Langenecker on the Morning Buzz.

Madison Magazine’s Aaron R. Conklin interviews Sean Langenecker.

“Mozart’s a fantastic talent, but he just wants to be loved,” he says. “The key is to take away all that legend, the gigantic idea of what Mozart would become, and make him a person who can hurt and can love.”
