Photos from the National Theater’s new revival of “Amadeus” by Peter Schaffer.
Love the diverse cast and the fact that they have a live orchestra onstage! I think it’s a great way to really make the music in the piece (and there is a lot) come alive.
It’s a very vibrant color pallet (the golds, the green, check out Constanze’s dresses!) and an interesting architectural set design. Is that a hydraulic orchestra pit?
I wonder if the opulence of the costumes/lighting paired with the harsher set and “modern” clothes of some of the cast and musicians is meant to highlight the genius/mediocrity theme of the play.
This is one of my favorite shows, I wish I could go see it!
