Michael Longhurst’s acclaimed production of Amadeus is set to return to the National Theatre this month, playing at the Olivier Theatre from the 11th January, following sold out performances last year.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy it. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music and, ultimately, with God.
As well as featuring a live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia, the production’s return will also see Adam Gillen and Lucian Msamati reprising their roles of Mozart and Salieri.
Meanwhile, the rest of the cast is formed of: Sarah Amankwah, Fleur de Bray, Wendy Dawn Thompson, Carleen Ebbs, Nicholas Gerard-Martin, Christopher Godwin, Matthew Hargreaves, Carla Harrison-Hodge, Adelle Leonce, Michael Lyle, Andrew Macbean, Alexandra Mathie, Eamonn Mulhall,Ekow Quartey, Hugh Sachs, Matthew Spencer, Everal A Walsh and Peter Willcock.
The creative team for the production includes: design by Chloe Lamford, music direction and additional music by Simon Slater, choreography byImogen Knight, lighting design by Jon Clark and sound design by Paul Arditti.
