"It seemed to me that I had heard the voice of God – and that it issued from a creature whose own voice I had also heard – and it was the voice of an obscene child!"

Peter Shaffer's Amadeus tells the story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his relationship with court composer Salieri – the only man in Vienna who recognises Mozart's true genius and his own mediocrity.

Punctuated by Mozart's greatest compositions, Salieri recounts how he fought to understand why genius is gifted to some of us, and not to others.

Exeter University Theatre Company presents Peter Shaffer's Amadeus; the 22-strong ensemble cast works to bring 18th century Vienna to life, in all its splendour and squalour.

From the intrigue of the Imperial Court, to beautiful simplicity of notes picked on a piano, Amadeus allows us to discover the divine in the everyday.

Tickets: Weds-Thurs £12, Fri-Sat £14, students £8.
