Time Zone Theatre Ltd presents MOZART & SALIERI Opera by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, England Tour 2017.
“Villainy and genius can never be compatible?”
The opera follows the apocryphal legend that Antonio Salieri poisoned his rival and fellow composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart out of jealousy over his talent. Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908) used the short story Mozart and Salieri by Alexander Pushkin as libretto, which also inspired Peter Shaffer’s famous stage play and film Amadeus.
In a new English translation and staged by an award-winning team around stage director Pamela Schermann and musical director Andrew Charity, this original and innovative production will captivate its audience, making us witnesses, if not conspirators, of Salieri’s plan to poison Mozart.
Following a successful run at the Arcola Theatre Grimeborn Festival in 2015, Time Zone Theatre’s original take on this classic starts its England Tour on 25th March 2017 at the Old Joint Stock Theatre in Birmingham. Other touring venues include Kenton Theatre (Henley-on-Thames), Marine Theatre (Lyme Regis) , Shelley Theatre (Dorset) and Yvonne Arnaud Theatre (Guildford).
