Mozart! Mozart, forgive your assassin! I confess, I killed you...
When asked to play in the style of Handel, Mozart says "I don't like him." He also states that Christoph Willibald Gluck "boring." In fact Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart admired George Frideric Handel, played and listened to his works frequently, and even re-orchestrated a number of Handel's works including "Messiah." Mozart was also fond of Gluck's work.
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.
