Music. Power. Jealousy. Third Rail Repertory Theatre presents the UK’s National Theatre Live production of Amadeus. Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of Thrones, NT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play, broadcast from the National Theatre, with orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world, and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God. The production will play Saturday February 25 at 2 pm and 7 pm and Sunday February 26 at 2 pm at the Third Rail Repertory Theatre,17 SE 8th Ave, Portland.
