Amadeus

Amadeus is a play by Peter Shaffer, which gives a highly fictionalized account of the lives of the composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. In the play, significant use is made of the music of Mozart, Salieri and other composers of the period. The premieres of Mozart’s operas The Abduction from the Seraglio, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, and The Magic Flute are each the setting for key scenes of the play. Amadeus won the 1981 Tony Award for Best Play. It was adapted by Shaffer for the 1984 Academy Award winning film of the same name.

History Channel Features Faribault Icon – See it on Display Now!

History Channel Features Faribault Icon- the Tilt-A-Whirl!

Did you happen to see the American Restoration episode called “Boy Meets Whirl” on the History Channel in August?
The episode featured the refurbishment of a tilt-a-whirl, which as you should know was invented and manufactured in Faribault for over 80 years.

Now you can see that exact Tilt-A-Whirl on display in downtown Faribault, right now it is on display in front of Mill City Restaurant and soon it will move to its permanent home on Central Avenue (Downtown Faribault) next to Burkhartzmeyer’s Shoe store.
