ANN ARBOR, Mich. – On Sept. 15, immerse yourself in "Amadeus" through a University Musical Society performance live in downtown Ann Arbor.
Joined by musicians from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, vocalists from the UMS Choral Union will create a cornucopia of sound while the film "Amadeus," which won eight Academy Awards, is projected onto a large screen in Hill Auditorium.
Conducted by Jeffrey Schindler and accompanied by Louis Nagel on the piano, the musicians and vocalists will debut the music of "Amadeus Live" for the first time to Ann Arbor audiences.
Directed by Miloš Forman and released in 1984, "Amadeus" follows court composer Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) as he tries dramatically to dethrone the young, risqué and naturally-gifted Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce).
