OLD SALIERI:

Mozart! Mozart! I cannot bear it any

longer! I confess! I confess what I

did! I'm guilty! I killed you! Sir

I confess! I killed you!

The door of the house bursts open. The Valet hobbles out,

holding the sugared cake. The wind catches at his shawl.

OLD SALIERI:

Mozart, perdonami! Forgive your

assassin! Pietˆ! Pietˆ! Forgive your

assassin! Forgive me! Forgive!

Forgive!

VALET:

(looking up to the

window)

That's all right, Signore! He heard

you! He forgave you! He wants you to

go inside now and shut the window!

Old Salieri stares down at him. Some of the passersby have

now stopped and are watching this spectacle.

VALET:

Come on, Signore! Look what I have

for you! I can't give it to you from

down here, can I?

Old Salieri looks at him in contempt. Then he turns away

back into the room, shutting the window with a bang. Through

the glass, the old man stares down at the group of onlookers

in the street. They stare back at him in confusion.

BYSTANDER:

Who is that?
