Product Description:

This provocative work weaves a confrontation between mediocrity and genius into a tale of breathtaking dramatic power. In the court of the Austrian Emperor Josef, Antonio Salieri is the established composer. Enter the greatest musical genius of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realize his sole ambition to be a great composer. Mozart is a foul-mouthed, graceless oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri's envious grasp: Genius.

Product Description:

This radio broadcast of Sir Peter Hall's 1983 National Theatre production stars Paul Scofield as Salieri, Simon Callow as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Felicity Kendal as Constanze Mozart. The National Theatre run of Peter Shaffer's play was a massive hit, and spawned the later film production.
