Amadeus is a hit! Standing ovation from opening weekend audiences – Capacity Crowds – Five Stars and a “must see” from DcMetroTheaterArts

Tickets available online for the Sunday’s (10/2) matinee and all other performances.

A capacity crowd on Saturday night greets the cast of AMADEUS with their second standing ovation of opening weekend in their five star review says:

“The Providence Players of Fairfax’s production of Amadeus is a glorious mixture of drama and comedy and music that is truly transcendent. This production was skillfully directed by Julie Janson [and] Music Director Kyle Keene does a superb job as he blends the music of Mozart into just the right places to provide a wonderful effect of time and place. The performances in Amadeus are exceptional. The ultra-talented David Whitehead as Salieri takes on a challenging role with intelligence and intensity…[his] performance is layered and nuanced. As Mozart, Mike Rudden is brilliant as an innocent genius who simply cannot cope. The characters known as Venticelli 1 (Bobby Welsh) and Venticelli 2 (Debora Crabbe) are truly excellent as sort of “narrators” to fill in the blanks and keep the story moving. Katherina Cavalieri…portrayed by the incomparable Christina Massimei is an opera singer…She has a rich soprano voice that is nothing short of stunning. …Please get your tickets for this profound and enjoyable experience. It is not to be missed!”

Amadeus is the story of legendary composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as told through the eyes of his jealous rival Antonio Salieri, this psychological mystery has played to thunderous applause the world over. The scene is set in Vienna, 1781: the young Mozart can write an opera a week but can’t control his exuberant giggling and notorious libido. Antonio Salieri–until now the royal court’s most lauded musician–recognizes Mozart’s genius, calling him “God’s magic flute.” Pious, wicked, and soon to be guilt-ridden, Salieri tries everything to subvert the success of this enfant terrible. Will that include murder? Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus has won five Tony Awards including Best Play, and the 1984 film adaptation won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture. This masterpiece has been passionately adapted and inventively staged by Julie Janson in her directorial debut with the Providence Players.
