When your hard-earned fame has been surpassed by a brilliantly gifted, and foully crass, golden boy, what else is there to do but smile to his face while secretly plotting his downfall? Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus, winner of the 1981 Tony Award for Best Play and 1984 Academy Award® for Best Picture, depicts the flamboyant genius of Mozart as seen through the eyes of his desperately jealous contemporary, Salieri. This portrayal of the mind of a maestro has music, madness, and Mozart—all set to the tune of revenge.
