Prague Shakespeare Company in association with Národní divadlo presents
By Peter Shaffer
Directed by Guy Roberts
Featuring Czech surtitles and translation by Martin Hilský
30 June at 19:00
Experience the Czech Premiere of the English language version of Amadeus by Peter Shaffer performed in the historic Estates Theater – where Mozart premiered Don Giovanni in 1787 and where Milos Forman filmed the Academy Award winning film of this Tony Award winning play. In the court of the Austrian Emperor Josef, Antonio Salieri is the established composer. Enter the greatest musical genius of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realize his sole ambition to be a great composer. Mozart is a foul-mouthed, graceless oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri’s envious grasp: Genius.
