Amadeus tells the story of tension between composers Antonio Salieri and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – a story fuelled by ambition, obsession and betrayal. This contemporary revival of Peter Schaffer’s original play was a highlight of the Sydney Opera House’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

As part of the campaign, we created a program for the production. Taking inspiration from the iconic layered set design, we extended this as a graphic approach throughout the publication. Paired with striking photography of various cast members, the program showcases the contemporary and bold nature of the production as well as the gripping tension and intrigue of the story.
