Jealousy stalks this seminal work by the late Peter Shaffer, making a triumphant return to the theatre where it debuted in 1979. Court composer Salieri is cursed with just enough musical appreciation to realise how mediocre his efforts are in comparison with Mozart – whose instinctive genius is yoked to an obscene child persona – a realisation that shakes his fundamental faith. If music is God’s art, why isn’t his virtue rewarded with a divine voice? Why does the Almighty choose instead, as his conduit, someone who Salieri deems so unworthy?
