Amadeus, by Peter Shaffer, is a fictionalized reimagining of the lives of Antonio Salieri and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The story opens on the eve of old man Salieri’s death who weaves a story of envy, lust and perhaps...the murder of the impetuous savant Amadeus. In this, the “last hour of life,” Salieri presents to the audience, “And now! Gracious ladies! Obliging gentlemen! I present to you – for one performance only – my last composition, entitled ‘The Death of Mozart – or, Did I Do It?’”

Opening on Broadway in 1981, Amadeus had 11 Tony award nominations, winning nine including Best Play, Best Actor in a Leading Role, and Best Direction. In 1985, the movie version, with screenwriting by Peter Shaffer, added to its award collection with eight Oscars including Best Picture.

This production represents a highly integrated collaboration between three strong community arts organizations: the Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra, Pit & Balcony Community Theatre, and the Saginaw Valley State University’s Concert Choir. The actors, orchestra and choir are integrated throughout this production to create a powerful, one-night experience for everybody.
