Oh the discoveries one can find in charity shops, in this instance in the local Oxfam. Last Saturday, I found in it a leaflet announcing a stage version of Amadeus by Peter Shaffer. Because before being an amazing movie, it was an amazing play. I first discovered the movie of course, which is one of my favourite of all time. It is only decades later than I found the stage play, in the English section of a second hand bookshop in Montreal (this one). I loved it just as much. The different medium really brought a completely different dimension to the story. But now, I have the opportunity to finally see the play on stage. This will be a marriage of two things I dearly love: Mozart's music and theater. I think I will buy the tickets tonight. And I will end this post with a trailer of the movie, which is very similar to the beginning of the play.
