Audio Described | Official Amadeus | Free National Theatre at Home Full Performance
Watch the audio described version of the National Theatre's Amadeus, Peter Shaffer’s iconic play. The version without audio description is available here:
Music. Power. Jealousy. Welcome to Vienna. 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.
Directed by Michael Longhurst (Constellations, The World of Extreme Happiness), Lucian Msamati (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, 'Master Harold’… and the boys) plays Salieri – with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia.
Amadeus is streaming from 7pm UK time on Thursday 16 July until 7pm UK time on Thursday 23 July 2020.
With thanks to support from our Partner for Learning, Bank of America.
The running time is 2hrs 50mins with a very short interval.
The BBFC age rating is 15 due to some strong language and moderate sex references.
