Biography #2 (for Amadeus)

Christine Ebersole, who plays the sexy opera diva Katerina Cavalieri who infatuates both Mozart and Salieri in Amadeus, is an unusually versatile actress whose roles in the last few years have ranged from the stately Queen Guinevere opposite Richard Burton, followed by Richard Harris in Camelot to Ado Annie in the Broadway revival of Oklahoma and to sketch comedy on Saturday Night Live.

Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, Christine Ebersole graduated from Winnetka's New Trier High School, whose alumni also include Charlton Heston, Ann-Margaret, Rock Hudson and Bruce Dern.

After two years at McMurray College, she was urged to go to New York and was accepted by the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. During her two years with the Academy, she developed her career as a nightclub singer.

Christine has appeared on Broadway in a series of long-running shows: Oklahoma for fifteen months, followed by Camelot for over a year and then Saturday Night Live as Skye, the Playmate-turned-actress. Recent film and television appearances are: Mary and Rhoda, Double Platinum, "Ira Gershwin at 100: A Celebration at Carnegie Hall, and The Rodgers & Hart Story: Thou Swell, Thou Witty."
