Quotes & Awards

  • “This faithful audio adaptation of Paul Shaffer’s Tony- and Academy Award-winning masterpiece immediately takes the listener to the heart of the story—the emotions. Whether it is Mozart’s (James Callis) dizzying self-confidence, weighed down by his fear of losing his father’s approval, or Constanze’s (Jocelyn Towne) fear of losing her husband, or court composer Antonio Salieri’s (a marvelous Michael Emerson) ability to express admiration, loathing, and doubt all in a single sentence—it’s all there in the words. Emerson, especially, has a wonderful time teasing out the brooding, soaring, crazed flights of fancy in Salieri’s monologues. Amadeus is a superb, entertaining work, and this live audio version finds the history, humor, and humanity in every scene.”
