"Amadeus" photographs
Weathervane Playhouse in Akron, Ohio, presents "Amadeus" -- live on stage from March 29 to April 15, 2012.

Directed by Eric van Baars

Vienna, Austria, in the late 18th century — the glorious mecca for musicians — is the setting for this brilliant, highly fictionalized dramatization of a great struggle for power and artistic dominance between two famous yet dissimilar composers. In Peter Shaffer's thrilling play, Antonio Salieri is the securely established and favored composer in the court of Austrian Emperor Joseph II who confronts a fierce rival in the ferociously outlandish Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The photographs in this set were shot by Scott Diese for Weathervane Playhouse.
