The Hindu MetroPlus is organising a theater festival from 10th to 13th October, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. Four reputed English plays from various parts of the country will be staged during the 4-day festival. Today, the last day, Amadeus, will be enacted by Boardwalkers from Chennai. The play has been written by Peter Shaffer, and is directed by Michael Muthu.

Peter Shaffer's magnificent psychological drama "Amadeus" has created a controversy, ever since its first performance in London. The play deals with the life and times of the great Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Salieri, a Viennese court composer. It probes profound, sometimes disturbing, themes that transcend the personalities of Mozart and Salieri.

The drama starts with a confession of murder, and goes on to explain what caused it. Although the title suggests Mozart is the protagonist, it is his bitter rival Salieri and not the great composer who occupies centrestage and whose mind we are invited to enter.

As the narrator, Salieri bares his jealousy and explains his dilemmas, as he recounts the dramatic story of a rivalry between a musical genius and a powerful, but ordinary, court composer. Ambitious and moving, Amadeus is widely regarded as one of the great modern plays.

Launched in Chennai in 2005, The MetroPlus Theatre Festival has become a big success, growing in ambition and in maturity with every passing year. This August, the Chennai event comprised 12 plays – 4 of them from abroad. The highly encouraging response in Chennai has led to the festival debuting in Hyderabad, another city with a large discerning and appreciative audience for the arts.

The Hyderabad event is made up of four plays – all of which are being staged at the Ravindra Bharati - Love Letters by Rage (Mumbai), Five Point Someone by The Madras Players (Chennai), Butter And Mashed Banana by Harami Theatre (Bangalore) and Amadeus by Boardwalkers (Chennai).

The entry is by tickets of Rs. 300, Rs. 200 and Rs. 100 per head, and season passes are available for Rs. 900 and Rs. 600 per head. Please contact The Hindu at 2341-7777 for further details.
