Music. Power. Jealousy.

Lucian Msamati (LutherGame of ThronesNT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play, broadcast live from the National Theatre, and with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia.

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

Skip the jetlag and join us for the best of London theater right here in Easton. The Williams Center introduces a new series, National Theatre Live Downtown. In partnership with the Lafayette College Theater Department, we'll present broadcast performances from London's vaunted venues--the National Theatre, the Old Vic, the Barbican, Donmar Warehouse, and other West End houses--at the Landis Cinema, Buck Hall, 219 North 3rd Sreet. 

After winning multiple Olivier and Tony Awards when it had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, Amadeus was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.
