Nikolai Rimski-Korsakow

Mozart and Salieri



Duration: 1 hour
Opera in one act based on a drama by Alexander Pushkin
With a prologue by Matthias Bundschuh
In German with explanations in German and English
New production as part of the Mozart Week 2024

Obsessed with his art but driven by the tortuous view of being hopelessly inferior to Mozart’s ingenuity, Salieri sees only one solution – to poison his rival. A performance with music, poetry and marionettes revolving around Pushkin’s play, set to music by Rimsky-Korsakov as an opera in one act.
