Love this teaser-trailer for the National Theatre’s production of Twelfth Night!

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!
