Experience the multi-Academy Award® winning 1984 motion picture, Amadeus on a vast HD screen while Mozart’s most celebrated works are performed live in-sync by a full orchestra and members of Toronto Mendelssohn Choir.
Conducted by Richard Kaufman
With the Motion Picture Symphony Orchestra
Winner of 8 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Milos Forman’s sumptuous Amadeus is an aural and visual treat for all the senses.
Adapted from Peter Shaffer’s original stage play, Amadeus the motion picture, stays true to its origins highlighting the contrast between, as Shaffer himself described, “the sublimity of his [Mozart] music and the vulgar buffoonery of his letters” which, “read like something written by an eight-year-old.”
“Amadeus weaves a beautiful, tragic fable, enchanting to children and adults alike. It has gore, a pact with God, celebrity, a masked stranger, murder and some of the best music ever written. What other film offers half as much?” (The Guardian).
Amadeus LIVE is an Avex Classics International production
Presented by Sony Centre and Attila Glatz Concert Productions
