About the concert

Experience the multi-Academy Award® winning 1984 motion picture, Amadeus on a vast HD screen while Mozart’s most celebrated works are performed live in-sync by a full orchestra and choir.

Winner of 8 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Milos Foreman’s sumptuous Amadeus is an aural and visual treat for all the senses.


Adapted from Peter Shaffer’s original stage play, Amadeus the motion picture, stays true to its origins highlighting the contrast between, as Shaffer himself described, “the sublimity of his [Mozart] music and the vulgar buffoonery of his letters” which, “read like something written by an eight-year-old.”

Set against the backdrop of Vienna, the film unravels the gripping tale of court composer Antonio Salieri. Consumed by envy upon discovering that the genius he longed for has been bestowed upon the bawdy, vulgar, and impish young composer, Mozart, Salieri's emotions fuel a plot to destroy the man. Yet, paradoxically, he finds himself unable to tear away from the sheer brilliance of Mozart's music.


“Amadeus weaves a beautiful, tragic fable, enchanting to children and adults alike. It has gore, a pact with God, celebrity, a masked stranger, murder and some of the best music ever written. What other film offers half as much?” (The Guardian).
