Mozart drinks himself ill while he is writing Salieri's requiem and Schikaneder's Vaudeville "The Magic Flute". During the premier of "The Magic Flute", Mozart collapses while playing the piano for the play. Salieri takes him home and insists that he helps Mozart in writing the Requiem. During this time, Constanze returns home from the spa in the morning to find Mozart sleeping in bed and Salieri sleeping in her son's little bed. Contanze wakes Salieri up and asks him to leave. Salieri refuses, saying he'll only listen to Mozart. Irritated, Constanze tells Mozart to tell Salieri to leave only to find him dead in his bed. Mozart is taken to the graveyard and is cast into a grave.
Factual error: During the scene where Mozart is being carried away in his coffin by horse and cart there is a brief shot where he is being taken down a muddy path and a farmer is seen with his cows. If you look closely to the left side of the screen you can see a large overhead power line. If you look even more closely you can even see the wires coming out of the pylon. The movie is set in the 18th century and obviously it should not be there. (02:50:50)ItsGav
