Saturday, April 15, 1 p.m.—RUTLAND—Paramount Theatre continues its Live in HD broadcasts from the National Theatre of Great Britain with the second in a three-play series. The broadcast—Peter Shaffer’s masterpiece “Amadeus”—will screen Saturday, April 15 at 1 p.m.
Lucian Msamati plays Salieri in Shaffer’s iconic exploration of music, power and jealousy. The production also features live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world—and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God. After winning multiple Olivier and Tony Awards when it had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, “Amadeus” was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 those under 18. The Paramount Theatre is located at 30 Center St., Rutland. For more information, call 802-775-0903 or visit paramountvt.org.
