Always a Salieri, never a Mozart

“Mozart, Mozart, Mozart!” It’s tough being second best, but its even worse when el numero uno is miles more talented.

Set in the court of the Austrian Emperor Josef II, Wine Country Theatre’s Amadeus tells the story of Salieri, the established composer of the day. Enter the greatest musical genius of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salieri suddenly finds himself measured against the brilliant, yet infantile prodigy, Mozart. Salieri recognizes Mozart’s genius immediately—and, as quickly, his own mediocrity.

Amadeus runs Nov. 18 through Dec. 4 at the Park Street Ballroom in Paso Robles. Tickets are $25 for general admission and $15 for students. Visit winecountrytheatre.com for tickets and more information.
