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 a petulant young genius called Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who arrives in Vienna determined to make a name for himself.
Salieri has the power to either promote Mozart's talent or destroy it, but, awestruck by his genius, he's soon overcome with a bitter jealousy and begins a war with the talented young maestro.
