Perth Symphony presents Amadeus Live
The 1984 motion picture performed live in-sync by our full orchestra
28 August 2021
In an epic 10th Anniversary celebration, Perth Symphony brings you Mozart like you’ve never seen before.
Experience the multi-Academy Award® winning motion picture on a vast HD screen at Crown Theatre while Mozart’s most celebrated works are performed live by Perth Symphony Orchestra, with full choir.
Amadeus is a screen triumph, a sumptuous period epic, a soaring celebration of the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Winner of 8 Academy Awards® in 1984, including Best Picture, Actor, Director and Adapted Screenplay, Amadeus tells the story of Vienna court composer, Antonio Salieri and the envy that consumes him upon discovering that the divine musical gifts he has so longed for all his life, have been bestowed on a bawdy, vulgar and impish young composer, Mozart. Salieri’s envy fuels his plot to destroy the man, while all the while unable to tear himself away from the genius of his music.
Thank you to concert partners The Barton Family Foundation, AHG and Kim and Sandra Grist for making this event possible.
