MOZART & SALIERI An opera by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

“Villainy and genius can never be compatible?“ The opera follows the apocryphal legend that Antonio Salieri poisoned Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart out of jealousy over his talent. Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908) used the short play Mozart and Salieri by Alexander Pushkin as libretto for his opera, which also served Peter Shaffer as inspiration to his famous stage play and film Amadeus.

In a new English translation and staged by an award-winning team around musical director Andrew Charity (MD of the OLIVIER-award winning La Boheme production in 2011) this take on the famous story of Mozart and Salieri captivates its audience, making them witnesses, if not conspirators of Salieri's plan to poison Mozart.
