Director Theu Boermans is looking for a total of one thousand choir members for his musical performance about Mozart. Amadeus must be seen in theaters from June.

"We approach regional choirs to work with", says the theater maker at the AD. The performance Amadeus travels from September, including The Hague, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Heerlen and Groningen. In addition to the regional choirs, Boermans has a permanent orchestra at his disposal, which has to be part of the performance.

Amadeus was performed for the first time at the end of the seventies. The piece is about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and contemporary Antonio Salieri, a driven composer who is frustrated with jealousy by the talent of his young colleague. In 1984 there was a film version, which was awarded with eight Oscars. Boermans, in his own words, allows himself some freedom in the story to make associations with the present.

Theu Boermans directed various theater performances, including major productions such as Soldaat van Oranje and ANNE . Between 2011 and 2017 he was artistic director of the Nationale Toneel.
