With the glorious music of Mozart as a backdrop, Peter Shaffer’s AMADEUS assures North Coast Repertory Theatre of a grand start to Season 38. The Tony winner for Best Play weaves the fascinating tale of composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. Told in a series of flashbacks laced with humor, intrigue and personal insight, AMADEUS examines two men – one consumed with jealousy; the other, blissfully unaware of his extraordinary gifts. Deemed “terrifically entertaining and highly theatrical” by The New York Times, this audience favorite deftly explores musical genius by a master playwright. Tickets are already going quickly, so order now.
