Ambition. Obsession. Betrayal.

Antonio Salieri may be a religious man but the vengeful dark of his desires are wholly unholy, and atonement won't come easy for the alleged murder of the world’s most famous composer - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. His startling confession involves regency-sized egos, envy-inspiring concertos and dizzying mayhem. 

Watch as history’s most fictitious rivalry comes to life on the Concert Hall stage on New Year's Eve as a gripping contemporary spectacle fuelled by ambition, obsession, and betrayal.

Presented by the Sydney Opera House and Red Line Productions.

This project is proudly supported by the NSW Government through the Blockbuster Funding initiative.

Frequently Asked Questions - Performance and Venue

What time do I need to arrive before the event?

If you are late, we will seat you as soon as we can and, where possible, in your allocated seat. However, to reduce movement in the venue as well as minimise disruption to the performance and other patrons, ticketholders may be seated in an allocated latecomer’s seat. Please be aware that some events have lock-out periods. In these cases, latecomers will be admitted at a suitable break in the performance. On occasions, this may not be until the interval, or at all where there is no interval.
