Assignment 2: Cultural Activity Report

Please include paragraph # and bold header as in example.

Paragraph 1

(Introduction) The purpose of this essay is to describe the plot, two scenes, and my overall thoughts about the play Amadeus. The plot of this play dates back to introduce Antonio Salieri (“Salieri”), famous musician and composer, and another famous musician , Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (“Mozart”) . A rumor had floated around stating that Salieri was jealous of Mozart because of his genius musician capabilities (Shaffer). After many failed attempts to sabotage Mozart, Salieri poisoned and killed him.

 

 Paragraph 2

(Three Characters in the Play) There are three special characters present in this play. I chose Antonio Salieri, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Katherina Cavalier. As I stated earlier, Salieri is one of the main characters, famous musician and composer. In part 1 of the play, he asks God for success as a composer, and in return, he would remain faithful to his wife Teresa. Salieri is married to Teresa; however, he loves and lusts over his student, Katherina Cavalier. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is also one of the main characters in the play. In the beginning, he only had a girlfriend, Constanze, whom he loved. However, Mozart’s father did not approve of their relationship. The both of them later married. Katherina Cavalier was Salieri’s student and also a singer. She went on to become quite famous.

Paragraph 3

(Describe the first scene) The first scene I want to describe is called  Death of Mozart. During this scene, Salieri was present and changed his hair. He begins to narrate the time period—his wife Teresa is present and student Katherina Cavalier is singing with the piano player. Salieri even describes his lust for Katherina. Both of these women wore gowns from the ancient times, which were puffy in the back and white wigs. The background included a piano, curtains, and table, glass of water or wine and food. In part 1 of the play, Mozart states: “Marry me!! I’ll sh** on the bed and say I did it”. This took place after the cat and mouse game between Mozart and Constanze. Salieri was astonished and shocked by the admission and behavior of Mozart and Constanze.

Paragraph 4

(Describe second scene) In part 2 of the play, the background is similar to part 1. The same piano, curtains, and table were present. The characters were similar in part 1, just like in part 2 and dressed in the same clothing. One of the scenes from part 2 is after Mozart found out he is banned from the opera unless he re-writes his composition. Immediately after this confrontation, Mozart begins talking to Salieri saying: “I am forbidden, but of course you already know that”. The only other person in the room is Salieri at the time. His facial expression shows concern, but he was happy about the news. Salieri says he would speak with the Emperor about attending Mozart’s rehearsal. However, Salieri never spoke with the Emperor about Mozart’s rehearsal.

Paragraph 5

(Overall reaction to play) I enjoyed the play overall. I think Salieri had a lot of jealousy and resentment toward Mozart because he knew he would never be as good as Mozart. I would see the play again, but I do not think I would pay to see it unless it would be beneficial to one of my children. A part of the play that I found to be very comedic was when Mozart was acting like a cat chasing Constanze Weber (who would eventually become his wife) around while she acted like mouse. I didn’t like the way Count Rosenberg and Salieri were working together sabotage Mozart and his Opera Figaro. I do enjoy some of Mozart’s music, I find it to be calming and relaxing. Overall I enjoyed watching the play and this assignment.
