MOZART AND SALIERI
Моцарт и Сальери  (1897)

Website MOZART AND SALIERI copy.jpg

Music by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
Libretto by Alexander Pushkin

Sung in Russian with English Supertitles

Well before the movie Amadeus, the imagined rivalry between Mozart and Salieri inspired Pushkin’s poetry, which Rimsky-Korsakov set as a haunting chamber opera. While there is, in fact, virtually no evidence that the relationship between the two composers was contentious, the death of Mozart at the age of 35 was followed by rumors that he and Salieri had been bitter rivals, which of course makes for great theater! Opera Saratoga presents a one-night only concert of scenes from operas by Mozart and Salieri – showcasing the virtuosic brilliance of both composers - followed by a concert staging of Rimsky-Korsakov’s psychological drama, the first Russian opera in Opera Saratoga’s history.

ONE NIGHT ONLY!
