PREVIEW: Amadeus

On September 15 at 2 pm, UMS will be screening the classic 1984 movie Amadeus in Hill Auditorium, with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra performing the soundtrack live! The movie, which was originally a play, tells the story of Mozart (Tom Hulce), and the jealous fascination of Vienna court composer Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham, who won Best Actor for role) regarding Mozart’s musical gifts.

Best of all, the score contains some of Mozart’s greatest compositions, including excerpts from The Magic Flute, the Symphony No. 25, Don Giovanni, The Marriage of Figaro, and his Requiem – all live with the DSO!

For ticketing information, visit the Michigan League ticket office or go to As always, UMS student tickets are $12 or $20, depending on seat location.
