The incredible story of genius musician Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, told in flashback by his peer and secret rival Antonio Salieri—now confined to an insane asylum. Adapted from the Tony Award-winning play and Oscar-winning movie Amadeus by Peter Shaffer, Mozart & Salieri includes a complete performance of Mozart’s Requiem—featuring the Grammy Award-winning Pacific Chorale—Don Giovanni Overture and other selections. Marco Barricelli (replacing the previously announced David Ivers) stars as Salieri, the role he incorporated in South Coast Repertory's 2016 production of Amadeus.

"Marco Barricelli, a veteran stage actor with prestigious credits in the title roles of “Hamlet,” “Richard III” and “Henry V,” was our Salieri, a monologue-rich role that has to carry the show. Baricelli was up to it, resonant of voice, duplicitous but not dastardly, eloquent but human."  —OC Register

"Barricelli infuses Salieri’s last encounter with Mozart with a scalding guilt that is both illuminating and moving." —Los Angeles Times
