Another point worthy of a mention also is the experience encountered by writer, Peter Schaffer upon entering the theatre in Prague for the first time. A good portion of the filming was done in that theatre.

He was there with director, Milos Forman and producer, Saul Zaentz when suddenly Milos noticed Peter had disappeared.

They found him in a corridor of the theatre and he was crying.
Mr Shaffer had become overwhelmed with emotion when he came to realize he was standing in the same place where Mozart himself in person once stood.

It has become a priority on my list of things to do "before the curtain comes down" to visit Prague and step inside the doors of that theatre.
Currently it is known as "The Estates Theatre."
