    Summary

    The joint premiere of Mozart's Der Schauspieldirektor and Salieri's Prima la musica e poi le parole at the Orangery in 1786 inspires some strong feelings and jibes about the state of opera, provokes rash (and not so rash) actions in an out-of-the way billiards room, and inspires Salieri to consider a new dimension to his ongoing war against God.

    Missing scene for the play (with the canonical back-and-forth between Salieri's reminiscences in the 1820s and action/dialogue in the 1780s). Loosely set sometime between the premiere of La grotta di Trofonio and the conversation between Salieri and Rosenberg about how to block Figaro.

    Elements of this are definitely dubcon, with Salieri's inner monologue occasionally pondering the possibility of noncon (although there is nothing particularly explicit in this scene and Mozart turns out to be into it).

    Summary

    I wrote this play to represent something that never quite made sense to me. The utter loathing that Salieri felt for Mozart felt a bit too one dimensional, and simply didn’t make sense to hate someone so fully as to commit murder without there being something worse than skill. The fact that Salieri was perhaps infatuated with Mozart, that he loved and loathed him, for being a silly man who has been so blessed, and also for being insufferable made much more sense to me. The old saying of love and hate are both similar emotions was the main idea and theme of this monologue.

    Summary

    Once he has worked his hardest to destroy the only person he has ever unironically admired, Salieri does the sensible thing and gets well and truly wasted.

    Or:
    Salieri goes to see Mozart after he has died. The only problem is that he isn't quite dead yet.
