MOZART AND SALIERI – THE OPERA
Opera in two acts by Nikolai Rimski-Korsakow after a dramolette by Alexander Puschkin, with a prologue by Matthias Bundschuh.
Obsessed with his art but driven by the tortuous view of being hopelessly inferior to Mozart’s ingenuity, Salieri sees only one solution – to poison his rival. A performance with music, poetry and marionettes revolving around Pushkin’s play, set to music by Rimsky-Korsakov as an opera in one act.
In German with German & English supertitles
Coproduction of the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation, The Salzburg Marionette Theatre and the Salzburg Mozarteum University
