Colorado Symphony Will Live-Score Amadeus

Few movies capture the myth of the mad genius better than Amadeus, Milos Forman's Academy Award-scooping epic. Next month, the Colorado Symphony, conducted by Brett Mitchell, will live-score the film.

This is the perfect mashup of the orchestra's embrace of pop culture through the Movie at the Symphony series and its obligation to perform canonical music for longtime subscribers.

The orchestra will bring out the Colorado Symphony Chorus, under the direction of Duain Wolfe, to fill out the sound on the operatic parts of the score (not to mention that sweeping meditation on mortality, Mozart's final requiem).

While most of the orchestra's Movies at the Symphony performances are family-friendly, Amadeus is squarely R-rated, so plan to leave the kids behind (unless they like terrifying ghosts of fathers, sex galore and watching artists drink themselves toward the grave).

The performance will take place at Boettcher Concert Hall at 7:30 p.m. Friday, January 25, and Saturday, January 26.
