Now, this extraordinary work about the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is available with a new preface by Peter Shaffer and a new introduction by the director of the 1998 Broadway revival, Sir Peter Hall. Stepping into the shoes of Tom Vulce and F. As a teenager I discovered the movie version of this play, which had been written some years earlier by the great Peter Shaffer. Peter Shaffer's “Amadeus,” one of the longest running dramas to ever grace the Broadway stage, is back. Kaufman evidently hoped to create a sort of cultural-metaphysical detective story, somewhere between the biographical psychodrama of Peter Shaffer's 'Amadeus' and the time-traveling, serious playfulness of Tom Stoppard's 'Arcadia.' But here Mr. €Amadeus,” written by Peter Shaffer, premiered on Broadway in 1980, starring Ian McKellan as Antonio Salieri and Tim Curry as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Amadeus is a 1979 stage play written by Peter Shaffer, adapted into a film in 1984. Peter Shaffer's play (and later film) Amadeus has given many viewers the impression that Mozart was an immature, selfish brat who happened to possess great genius. Set amidst the opulence and splendour of 18th Century Vienna, this brilliantly written stage play by English dramatist Peter Shaffer features Mozart's music to glorious effect. The 1984 film, Amadeus, is a movie based on the life of 18th century composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and his relationship with fellow composer and musician Antonio Salieri. A modern contribution to the mythology is Peter Shaffer's 1979 play Amadeus, in which the mysterious messenger with the commission is the masked Antonio Salieri who intends to claim authorship for himself.
