Amadeus tells the story of ambition, obsession and betrayal between composers Antonio Salieri and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This contemporary revival of Peter Shaffer's play was a highlight of the Opera House's 50th celebrations.

As part of the campaign, we created a program for the production. Taking inspiration from the layered frame set design, we extended this element as a graphic approach throughout the publication layout.

Pairing this with striking photography and typography, the program showcases the contemporary nature of the play as well as the gripping tension and intrigue of the story.
