WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Amadeus tells the story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and court composer Antonio Salieri who, overcome with jealousy at hearing the "voice of God" coming from an "obscene child," sets out to destroy his rival. It's time to travel to Vienna with Salieri, who appears first as an old man, having long outlived his fame, as he takes us back to the late eighteenth century.  As Court Composer, Salieri is among the first to welcome Mozart into his circle.  Mozart attempts to win over the aristocratic "public" with increasingly brilliant compositions, which are always frustrated either by Salieri or by the aristocracy's own inability to appreciate Mozart's genius.
