Amadeus Live

Milos Forman's Oscar winning film, accompanied by the Göteborg Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

“About as close to perfection as movies get.”USA Today
“Amadeus weaves a beautiful, tragic fable, enchanting to children and adults alike. It has gore, a pact with God, celebrity, a masked stranger, murder and some of the best music ever written. What other film offers half as much?”The Guardian
Amadeus Live, trailer

About the event

Experience the multi-Academy Award® winning 1984 motion picture, Amadeus on a vast HD screen while Mozart’s most celebrated works are performed live in-sync by a full orchestra and choir. 

Winner of 8 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Milos Foreman’s sumptuous Amadeus is an aural and visual treat for all the senses.

Adapted from Peter Shaffer’s original stage play, Amadeus the motion picture, stays true to its origins highlighting the contrast between, as Shaffer himself described, “the sublimity of his [Mozart] music and the vulgar buffoonery of his letters” which, “read like something written by an eight-year-old.”

About the film

Amadeus is a screen triumph; a sumptuous period epic, a soaring celebration of the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 

Winner of 8 Academy Awards® in 1984, including Best Picture, Actor, Director and Adapted Screenplay, Amadeus tells the story of Vienna court composer, Antonio Salieri and the envy that consumes him upon discovering that the divine musical gifts he has so longed for all his life, have been bestowed on a bawdy, vulgar and impish young composer, Mozart. Salieri’s envy fuels his plot to destroy the man, while all the while unable to tear himself away from the genius of his music.

Premiere 8 June 2018.
3 performances, runs until 10 June.

Amadeus Live is a production of Avex Classics International
