Villainy and genius can never be compatible?

The opera follows the apocryphal legend that Antonio Salieri poisoned his rival and fellow composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart out of jealousy over his talent. Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908) used the short story Mozart and Salieri by Alexander Pushkin as libretto, which also inspired Peter Shaffer's famous stage play and film Amadeus.

Rimsky-Korsakov's rarely performed two-hander is a character study, a close-up of Salieri's tormented mind. He is portrayed as a generous man who is torn between admiration for his fellow composer and his own jealousy.

In a new English translation and staged by an award-winning team, this original and innovative production will captivate its audience, making us witnesses, if not conspirators, to Salieri's plan to poison Mozart.

After the performance of Mozart & Salieri, you are invited to A Night in Vienna with famous arias and duets from Mozart's best-known operas Don Giovanni, The Magic Flute and others.
