Next week from National Theatre at Home ... Peter Shaffer's iconic play Amadeus.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives determined to make a splash.

Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy it.

Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music and, ultimately, with God.

Peter Shaffer's play had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, winning multiple Olivier and Tony awards before being adapted into an Academy Award-winning film.

In this production, directed by Michael Longhurst (Constellations, The World of Extreme Happiness), Lucian Msamati (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, 'Master Harold'… and the boys) plays Salieri - with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia.

Amadeus will be streaming from 7pm on Thursday 16 July until 7pm on Thursday 23 July 2020 - watch it on the National Theatre's YouTube channel.
