This is the Tony Award-winning play that went on to become an Academy Award-winning film.
It tells the story of the rivalry between Antonio Salieri and petulant young genius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who arrives in Vienna determined to make his mark.
Awestruck by his genius, Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy it, but he is soon overcome with jealousy and begins a war with the talented young prodigy.
The music will be performed by the Southbank Sinfonia.
