Amadeus

I watched Amadeus with Claire tonight, and the film is really quite spectacular. It is impossible to walk home after seeing it and not get caught up in some of Mozart’s more dramatic musical moments. As with most very successful films, this one manages to offset drama and passion with comedy, in a way that heightens both.

I know almost nothing about Mozart’s life, so I can make no comment as to the accuracy of this portrayal. The film has made me determined that I should actually see an opera. Opera, botany, and classical history are three things that I have specifically decided to learn a great deal about in old age, when the acquisition of useful knowledge is no longer at such a premium.

No, I have not.

I hope to see one in London before I leave here.

You’ve never seen an opera?

Did you realize that many of the scenes were filmed in Prague? It made me very nostalgic to watch the film. The music is unforgettable.

I cannot recall many (if any) exterior scenes with recognizable buildings.

Which bits did you have in mind?
