Time Zone Theatre presents their acclaimed opera double-bill

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 his rival and fellow composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart out of jealousy over his talent. Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908) used the short story Mozart and Salieri by Alexander Pushkin as libretto, which also inspired Peter Shaffer’s famous stage play and film Amadeus. Rimsky-Korsakov’s rarely performed two-hander is a character study, it is a close-up of Salieri’s tormented mind. He is portrayed as a generous man who is torn between admiration for his fellow composer and his own jealousy.

 

In a new English translation and staged by an award-winning team around stage director Pamela Schermann and musical director Andrew Charity, this original and innovative production will captivate its audience, making us witnesses, if not conspirators, of Salieri’s plan to poison Mozart.

 

A NIGHT IN VIENNA A Mozart-Medley with a libretto by Pamela Schermann

The second half of the evening will show our new programme “A Night in Vienna“. Set in the reception area of the infamous Vienna Grand Hotel, three people become entangled in a web of love, affairs and intrigues. A fast-paced journey through the night with songs from Mozart’s most loved operas Don Giovanni, The Magic Flute, Cosi fan tutte and The Marriage of Figaro. Accompanied by piano and presented in a fresh interpretation with new English lyrics - Mozart as you’ve never heard it before! And remember: What happens in the Vienna Grand...
