About Amadeus

Amadeus (1980) was a theatre production by The National Theatre, the Norwegian premiere of the play by Peter Shaffer. The production was planned for the theatre's main stage, but the stage was destroyed by a fire. Because of this, the production was performed in front of the iron curtain in front of the stage. The role of Kaiser Joseph II was acted from the royal balcony.
