The Tony Award winner for Best Play -- and later, adapted to the screen, the Academy Award winner for Best Picture -- returns to the stage. In this classical music-driven drama from Bohemian Theatre Ensemble, composer Antonio Salieri, now in his twilight years, makes a bold claim: He may have killed Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Looking back on his life, Salieri explores his passionate, turbulent rivalry with the boorish but brilliant Mozart, alternating between trusted confidant and devious backstabber. But does Salieri actually have Mozart's blood on his hands, or is this just a way to escape his own obscurity? Interwoven with the masterful music of these two composers, Amadeus explores how far mortal man is willing to go in order to achieve the immortality that comes with being remembered. Learn More

The performance was overall very good. Both the leads are very talented and some good supporting work by the rest of the cast. The play did drag a little, there were about 3-4 too many songs that sounded similar and did nothing for the plot.
It's just after World War I and the loneliest of souls arrives at an Italian villa disguised as a handsome young Prince, and for the first time experiences the joys and heartbreaks of life.
