Before it became the Oscar-winning film, Amadeus
was a Tony-winning play. More than 30 years since its premiere, this period piece by Peter Shaffer (Equus, Black Comedy
) still has the power to thrill and amaze as the Oak Park Festival Theatre stages a new, outdoor production. From the moment it was written, the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart has inspired many emotions, including joy, sorrow and elation. Amadeus
focuses on one response: jealousy. Watch Mozart's glittering career unfold through the eyes of his most envious competitor, the composer Antonio Salieri. Though not the most accurate history, this dramatic and humorous play glories in Mozart's genius and the envy it created, a feeling shared by nearly every composer born since his mysterious death 300 years ago.
