Amadeus Live

by Grace Jensen

The eight-time Academy Award-winning 1984 motion picture Amadeus will be projected on the big screen at Hill Auditorium with Mozart’s famous pieces performed live by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the UMS Choral Union. Amadeus, adapted from Sir Peter Shaffer’s original stage play, tells the story of the frustrated Vienna composer Antonio Salieri and and his jealousy of the musical talents of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, leading him to plot the musician’s elimination. The score includes The Magic Flute, Symphony No. 25, Don Giovanni, The Marriage of Figaro, and Requiem. Ranked one of the American Film Institute’s best 100 movies of the 20th century.

Tickets start at $19
