The life, success and troubles of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as told by Antonio Salieri, the contemporary composer who was insanely jealous of Mozart's talent and claimed to have murdered him.
The piece of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's music with the oboe and clarinet themes, whose score Salieri so deeply admires in the early scenes, is the Adagio, or third movement, of the Serenade No. 10 in B-flat, KV361, also known as "Gran Partita".
Mozart! Mozart, forgive your assassin! I confess, I killed you...
Don Giovanni was not Mozart's "blackest" opera. Far from being dark, it was classified by Mozart himself as an opera buffa, or comic opera, and there's no evidence the Commendatore represents his father, Leopold.
The director's cut (2002) adds the following scenes (twenty minutes in total):
