Directed by Paul Mason Barnes, performances will begin Sept. 7 and continue through Oct. 3.

The cast will comprise Brent Harris (The Lion King) as Antonio Salieri, Jim Poulos (Broadway's Rent) as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Laura Griffith (Broadway revival of South Pacific) as Constanze Mozart with Michael Fitzpatrick (Count Von Strack), David Graham Jones (Venticelli I), Brad Heberlee (Emperor Franz Joseph II), Richmond Hoxie (Count Orsini-Rosenberg), Ned Noyes (Venticelli II) and Robert Rutland (Baron Von Swieten). Royce Bleier, Vinnie Carbone, Kate Dylan, Tim Ellison, Darrell Lance, Patricia Lewis, Stephanie McKee, Ricky Thomas and Rachael Yoder complete the ensemble.

"Stunned by the brilliance of Mozart’s music, and consumed by jealousy for a gift he knows he can never possess," press notes state, "the court composer Antonio Salieri plots to destroy the brash and fiery young genius."

The design team includes Bill Clarke (scenic design), Dorothy Marshall Englis (costume design), Ken Smith (lighting design) and Rusty Wandall (sound design).

Geva Theatre Center is located at 75 Woodbury Blvd. in Rochester, NY. For tickets, priced $22 - $59, call (585) 232-GEVA or visit www.gevatheatre.org.
