Another in the popular ‘National Theatre Live’ productions will be aired in Aix next Sunday.  It’s the all-new Peter Shaffer production  of Amadeus.  The critics have raved, not just about the stunning performances of the actors but at the freshness and creativity of the production.
Vienna, music capital of the 18th century world.  Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives determined to make a splash.  Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy it.  Seized by obsessive jealousy, he begins a war with Mozart, with music and, ultimately, with God.
The production assembles and reassembles itself – a virtuosic whirl of bits of scenery, fantastic singers, excerpts from the operas that, in their aesthetic, become wittily and pointedly ahead of their time.
Says organiser Karen Wildau: ‘You get the picture; come join us.  The production is three hours long and during its interval of 20 minutes will feature a Viennese Cafe Gourmand: Sacher Torte and strudel, coffee or tea—for only 13 euros (in addition to your ticket cost).  Tickets must be purchased on line at https://www.weezevent.com/amadeus.     
Please print out your tickets and bring them along’.
Time: 14:30, Sunday 19th March
Venue: Hotel Renaissance, 320 Avenue Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Aix (and how cool is that address!)
