Amadeus

Fall Arts Special

360
Nick LaMedica is Mozart. Ian Merrill Peakes is Salieri.

Genius and jealousy collide in the opulent salons and opera houses of 18th Century Vienna. When an impulsive and eccentric prodigy outshines an envious, God-fearing composer consumed by bitterness, theatrical fireworks emerge. The mediocre Salieri will do everything in his power to destroy his musical rival. In 1981, Amadeus won five Tony Awards including Best Play. It was also a beloved 1984 movie that won the Oscar for Best Picture of the Year. The Folger Shakespeare Theatre brings it to DC from Nov. 5 to Dec. 22. Tickets are $27 to $85. folger.edu.
