A Special Screening Of The Multi-Award Winning Film
Considered a biographical breakthrough, Milos Forman's 1984 period drama Amadeus celebrated the genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and garnered an astonishing eight Oscars, four BAFTAs and four Golden Globes for its depiction of the prolific composer's life and work through the eyes of his rival Antonio Salieri. Experience the cinematic spectacle anew in the company of Hollywood conductor Jeffrey Schindler, the Seattle Symphony Chorale and the Seattle Symphony as they accompany a special live screening of the film.
Mozart's best loved works punctuate the thrilling paradoxical relationship between Italian composer Salieri and Mozart. Able to recognise the magnificence of the young composer's musical gift and his own inferiority, Salieri vows to destroy him. Moving between past and present, Amadeus paints a very personal sonic portrait of the man behind some of the greatest music ever created, successfully conjuring the witty, self-assured and manic personality revealed in Mozart's letters.
