Milos Forman’s sumptuous period epic Amadeus is a soaring celebration of the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. With unforgettable performances by Tom Hulce as Mozart and F. Murray Abraham as his rival Antonio Salieri, Amadeus tells the story of Salieri and the envy that consumes him as he discovers that the divine musical gifts he longs for have been bestowed on a bawdy, impish young composer. Don’t miss a stunning presentation of this screen triumph, winner of eight Academy Awards® including Best Picture, with Mozart’s most celebrated works performed live by Members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Chicago Symphony Chorus.

Amadeus Live is an Avex Classics International production.
