Genius and jealousy collide in Folger Theatre’s production of Peter Shaffer’s contemporary classic play set against the backdrop of the opulent salons and opera houses of 18th-century Vienna. The Tony Award-winning “Best Play” examines the rivalry between court composer Antonio Salieri and the boorish but brilliant Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. When the eccentric genius begins to impress the Austrian court, Salieri will do everything in his power to destroy his musical rival. Featuring Helen Hayes Award-winner Ian Merrill Peakes as the tortured Salieri.
