Vincent Schiavelli appeared in almost every Forman film. Here he's Salieri's valet.
Mozart! Mozart, forgive your assassin! I confess, I killed you...
One of the artistic licenses taken is Salieri's self-professed chastity and aversion to women so he could praise God with his work instead. In reality Salieri had already been married for nine years when he first met Mozart (1784) to Therese Helferstorfer with whom he lived with until her death in 1807.
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.
