"Mediocrities everywhere -- now and to come -- I absolve you all."
The play is set in eighteenth-century Vienna and follows the story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as told by his rival, court composer Antonio Salieri. The show starts with a flood of whispers -- Salieri! Salieri! Murderer! Murderer!-- and we find ourselves in Salieri's bedroom, on the last night of his life when he has chosen to confess to being Mozart's assassin.
