Free Folger Friday: Mozart vs. Salieri @ Folger Shakespeare Library
Nov 22 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Free Folger Friday: Mozart vs. Salieri @ Folger Shakespeare Library

Classical WETA’s James Jacobs explores the history of the “Mozart vs. Salieri” myth, providing historical
context for the action of Peter Shaffer’s play. While these composers did and wrote much to create this
historical fantasy, they were helped along by two centuries of pop culture. Their rivalry depicted in opera,
film and literary adaptations. Despite all of this, a recently unearthed cantata believed to be cowritten by
Mozart and Salieri hints at a professional understanding that may have existed after all. 6-7 p.m. Free to
attend. Folger Shakespeare Library: 201 E. Capitol St. SE, DC; www.folger.edu
