Joy, sorrow, elation -- from the moment it was written, Mozart's music has inspired a host of emotions. Amadeus, the brilliant stage play by Sir Peter Shaffer, focuses on one response: jealousy. Travel back to the Austrian imperial court where the emperor's chosen composer, Antonio Salieri, reigns supreme until the arrival of a daring young talent, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Coarse, foul-mouthed and graceless, Mozart is everything that Salieri is not, including (of course) a genius. Awarded the Best Play Tony in 1981, Amadeus returns to the stage on the 30th anniversary of its Academy-Award-winning film adaption by Milos Forman. City Lights Theater Company presents this provocative and thrilling tale from the celebrated writer of Equus and Black Comedy. Learn More

Oh, to be Italian! Based on Federico Fellini’s film 8-½, this groundbreaking musical is an explosion of tangled relationships and romantic fantasies. Renowned filmmaker Guido Contini, pursued by hordes of women from his past and present, has just celebrated his 40th birthday. The flashbacks soon overwhelm his dreams, his art, and his future as he struggles to complete his latest film – a musical version of Casanova.
