In which year did Mozart write don Giovanni?

Little short Mozart, just on five foot tall, composed what is probably the tallest opera ever written, in 1787, the same year as Salieri's Axur, Cimarosa's I tre amanti and Kozeluh's Mose in Egitto.

Who asked Mozart to write opera's in Vienna?

In Vienna during the last ten years of his life Mozart was at last able to turn his fuller attention to the composition of opera. After he had won success in 1786 with Le nozze di Figaro on which he had collaborated with the Italian librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, he and Da Ponte were commissioned to provide a new opera for the following winter season in Prague - this turned out as Don Giovanni. "Don Giovanni" was presented for the first time in Prague, because Mozart, satisfied with the manner in which Bondini's troupe had sung his "Marriage of Figaro" a little more than a year before, he agreed to write another work for the same house. In Prague Mozart had allowed ten days for rehearsals of the opera. This proved far too short and the work was finally staged in the Nostic theatre Prague 29th October 1787 - too late for the celebration of the marriage of Archduchess Maria Theresa and Prince Clemens of Saxony for which the commission had been intended.

Why did Mozart write opera in Italian?

Is the movie amadeus based on a true story?

the 1984 movie Amadeus is based on the true life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the famous composer. Yes it was based on his life, but only part of it. The movie is actually not historically accurate. Yes, there was a Salieri but he did not know Mozart that well nor did he ever write The Requiem Mass Opera for him while Mozart was on his deathbed. There was no sinister plan of his to have Mozart write an Opera and suddenly die, then steal his work and perform it at his funeral. Works of fiction. But other than that, yes Mozart pretty much was the "shiznit"!
