CONCORD – At 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday, NH Theatre Factory will present “Amadeus” at the Concord City Auditorium (“The Audi”), 2 Prince St.
In partnership with the Concord Community Concert Association, “Amadeus” – directed by NH Theatre Factory artistic director Joel Mercier – will be presented the same weekend as Elliott Markow and the Symphony New Hampshire Chamber Players' performance, creating a weekend of Mozart. The Chamber Players will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday – in costume and on the “Amadeus” set.
NH Theatre Factory's production of “Amadeus,” originally mounted this past summer, received 7 Top-10 nominations for the NH Theatre Awards.
The play, by Peter Shaffer, is the incredible (and moderately fictionalized) story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, told by his peer and secret rival Antonio Salieri, the court composer for the Emperor of Austria. Jealous of Mozart's genius and resentful of his own mediocrity, Salieri secretly rejects God and vows to destroy his rival's career.
This provocative work weaves a confrontation between mediocrity and genius into a tale of breathtaking dramatic power.
The show is rated PG for moderate adult themes.
Tickets are $20. Available online at www.
concordcommunityconcerts.org/tickets or at The Audi box office. More information, visit www.nh theatrefactory.org.
