at Thompson Memorial Chapel


Peter Shaffer’s celebrated play Amadeus tells the fictionalized story of the rivalry between Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the prolific and genius composer, and Antonio Salieri, a contemporary composer and court musician in 18th century Vienna. Amadeus explores themes of jealousy, obsession, and the pursuit of artistic excellence, as Salieri becomes consumed by his envy towards Mozart’s talent. Through a series of flashbacks, Salieri recounts his attempts to undermine and destroy Mozart’s career, ultimately leading to his own downfall.

This captivating re-imagining of Amadeus at the majestic Thompson Memorial Chapel at Williams College promises an extraordinary and unforgettable theatrical experience. The chapel’s resplendent architecture and impeccable acoustics provide an awe-inspiring setting that flawlessly complements the play’s period backdrop, effortlessly transporting spectators to 18th-century Vienna. Engaging the entire space, this immersive production positions the audience on all sides of the chapel, enveloping the audience in the experience. Through the inclusion of a full orchestra and vocalists, this innovative production transcends conventional boundaries, enabling spectators to wholly immerse themselves in Mozart’s powerful and moving compositions and embrace the captivating allure of live music. This ambitious staging unites theater, music, and history, forging an indelible fusion that tantalizes the senses and leaves an enduring impact on every attendee.
