Antonio Salieri, the religiously devoted court composer of the Austrian Emperor, still waits for the heavenly gift he most desires: true musical brilliance. Then Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a crass and rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius and seized by obsessive jealousy, Salieri begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God.

This Tony Award-winning play features musical interludes with Mozart’s beloved compositions. Penfold’s production will thrill audiences with two distinct approaches. For one performance only, the music will be performed live by 40 members of the Central Texas Philharmonic. In the remaining performances, audiences will be treated to a “Mozart remix” by a local composer.

“A total iridescent triumph of complexity of thought, emotion and dramatic power.” – New York Post
