National Theatre At Home: AMADEUS

Vienna: the music capital of the world.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy it. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music and, ultimately, with God.

Peter Shaffer’s iconic play had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, winning multiple Olivier and Tony awards before being adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.

In this new production, directed by Michael Longhurst (Constellations, The World of Extreme Happiness), Lucian Msamati (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, 'Master Harold’… and the boys) plays Salieri – with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia.

More information can be found on the National Theatre at Home web page.

This show will be available on the National Theatre YouTube Channel.


To provide some entertainment for theatre fans while they're not able to visit their venues, National Theatre will release one of their past recorded-live titles each week. Each play will be available to watch on YouTube for one week, starting on a Thursday at 2pm (7pm UK time)
