The Drama Studio presents AMADEUS by Peter Shaffer, directed by Debbie Endris, June 29, 30, July 1 @7:30PM and July 1 @2:00PM at Southern Indiana School for the Arts' St. Genesius Theatre.
Amadeus gives a highly fictionalized account of the lives of the composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. First performed in 1979, Amadeus was inspired by a short 1830 play by Alexander Pushkin called Mozart and Salieri (which was also used as the libretto for an opera of the same nameby Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakovin 1897).
In the play, significant use is made of the music of Mozart, Salieri and other composers of the period. The premieres of Mozart’s operas The Abduction from the Seraglio, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, and The Magic Flute are each the setting for key scenes of the play.
Cast: John Campbell Finnegan as Antonio Salieri, Jacob Endris as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Julia Strange as Constanze Mozart. Ensemble: Paul Stiller, Grace Robertson, Jason Effinger and Chelsea Endris.
