The film ironically helped spark a revival of Salieri's music, which had previously languished in obscurity.
Mozart! Mozart, forgive your assassin! I confess, I killed you...
When Mozart is talking about the opera that will take place in harem, he uses the word "Turkey" as the country's name but in the 18th century, the Turkish country he is talking about is called "Ottoman Empire" and it does not take the name Turkey till 1920.
The producer, screenplay writer and director thank the following for their boundless assistance in our effort to present the physical authenticity and aura you have seen and felt in "Amadeus": -The National Theatre of Czechoslovakia and Prague's Tyl Theatre management for allowing us to film in the Tyl sequences from the operas: "Abduction from the Seraglio," "The Marriage of Figaro," and "Don Giovanni." It was actually in this magnificently preserved theatre that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart conducted the premiere performance of "Don Giovanni" on October 29, 1787. -His Eminence Cardinal Frantisek Tomasek for his kindness in permitting us to use his beautiful residence headquarters in Prague as the Emperor's palace. -The Barrandov Studios and CS Filmexport for their help in filming "Amadeus" in Prague and in castles and palaces throughout Czechoslovakia.
