Amadeus - Mozart Meeting with the Emperor!





The portrait of Mozart in Amadeus is rather accurate, but overdrawn and exaggerated. His letters, above all those to his cousin "Bäsle" (Anna Maria Thekla Mozart), betray his inclination towards scatological word-games. As Martin Esslin puts it, "[…] in his letters Mozart reveals himself as an individual of earthy sexuality and scantological expressiveness". Nonetheless, it is hardly probable that he should use the same language in his relations at court. His "unforgettable piercing and infantile" giggle is likewise an invention.
