Director Gary Griffin met at the Theater with Director of Education Marilyn Halperin and Associate Director of Education Beatrice Bosco in late June, a few weeks before the start of rehearsals.
Mozartís arrival in Vienna puts into action the plot of the play. Salieriís quarrel is not only with Mozart, but also with God. In part one of the interview, Griffin addresses how Salieriís struggle to understand Mozart's genius is the key to understanding Salieri.
In part two, Griffin considers the definition of genius.
