In Vienna, music is the currency of power and Court Composer Antonio Salieri is the toast of the town. That is until the arrival of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Confronted with true genius, Salieri is consumed with obsessive jealousy, declaring war on God for choosing to speak through this upstart and not him. His mediocrity becomes murderous as he sets out to destroy his potty-mouthed young rival and extinguish the spark of his divine talent.

Winner of seven Tony Awards including Best Play, Peter Shaffer's psychologically thrilling musical is one of the most famous and acclaimed plays of the late twentieth century. With sweeping operatic theatricality, it juxtaposes the petty world of human excess and envy with the transcendent achievements of human artistry and passion.

After the runaway success of Jesus Christ: Superstar, theatrical masters Oliver Driver and Leon Radojkovic bring Mozart's music to the fore to transform this modern classic into an extraordinary and unmissable experience.

The star-studded line-up includes Michael Hurst (Red, Cabaret No Holds Bard, Hercule), Ross McCormack (Triumphs and Other Alternatives, Matter, AGE), Morgana O’Reilly (Venus in Fur, Housebound, Home & Away), Byron Coll (The Mikado, Little Shop of Horrors, Ladykillers), Laughton Kora (Jesus Christ Superstar, Live, Live Cinema) and Kura Forrester (Perplex, The Opening Night Before Christmas).
