Pieter Toerien Main Theatre

R100 to R300

Gloucester Productions is thrilled to present a 2024 staging of Peter Schaffer’s gripping classic play Amadeus, starring Alan Committie as Salieri. This powerful, thrilling story about passion, jealousy, and vengeance heads to Pieter Toerien’s Main Theatre from 3 March to 7 April 2024. 

This thrilling drama has all the elements: Suspense, comedy, rousing music, and great characters. In the court of the Austrian Emperor Joseph II, Antonio Salieri is the established composer. Enter the greatest musical symphonist of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realize his sole ambition; to be a great melodist. Mozart, however, is a foul-mouthed, obnoxious oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri’s envious grasp: Genius.

 This is Salieri’s passionate telling of his act of vengeance in response to Mozart. Peter Schaffer has given us a riveting, intriguing study of the roots of envy and the haphazard nature of genius. Amadeus is brimming with gloriously evocative text and soaring snatches of Mozart’s music and promises to be a vivid theatrical occasion that’s not to be missed.

The duration of the show is 2 hours plus an interval and has a recommended Age Restriction of PG12.
