This two-act production follows the friendship of Antonio Salieri, a court composer living in Vienna, and musical prodigy, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, from the perspective of an aged and bitter Salieri, reliving his past. This fictional take on two well-known composers from the late 1700’s explores the gossip and rivalries that may have existed in the City of Musicians during such an illustrious time. The story is filled with laughter, romance, drama, and more, and will be sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
