Read full description of the books Peter Shaffer's Amadeus:In 1791, they say, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart died accusing a rival composer, Antonio Salieri, of having poisoned him.
In 1823, they say, Salieri confessed to that murder.
AMADEUS represents the substance of that confession, made by a desperate Salieri on the last night of his life. He tells it to the audience, who are taken back to the gilded court of Joseph II in rococo Vienna, a place of constant gossip and intrigue, and introduced to a brilliant young musical genius - or, as Salieri puts it, to a "spiteful, sniggering, conceited infantine Mozart!"
