From the stage to the big screen

2018-01-23 06:01

The Fugard Bioscope is rounding off the January line-up of the National Theatre Encore Season.

The National Theatre Encore Season is a chance to re-experience some of the most popular recorded live theatre titles of the 2017 bioscope season, featuring the best of British theatre screenings, as well as some new titles from the comfort of a Fugard Theatre seat, with its full-size high-definition cinema screen and 7.1 Dolby digital surround sound system.

The productions are filmed live, transporting you directly into the heart of the action on stage.

On Sunday 28 January at 11:00, viewers will explore themes of music, power and jealousy.

Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of Thrones, NT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer`s iconic play Amadeus, filmed at the National Theatre with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna – the music capital of the world – and he’s determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy, he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God.

Tickets cost R100 and can be booked through Computicket or at any Shoprite and Checkers outlet. Bookings can also be made at the Fugard Theatre box office on 021 461 4554.
