Tim Curry and Mark Hamill both auditioned for the role of Mozart (and played Mozart on Broadway).
Mozart! Mozart, forgive your assassin! I confess, I killed you...
Don Giovanni premiered Prague, not Vienna.
"Amadeus" was originally a National Theater Production in London, then produced in America by The Shubert Organization, Elizabeth I. McCann/Nelle Nugent and Roger Berlind.
The original theatrical version contains a brief moment that is absent from the director's cut. Just after Salieri is seen burning the crucifix, there is a cut back to old Salieri in which he finishes his monologue with "I will ruin your incarnation."
