PSIP Description: 
Amadeus tries to meet the Empress and Devilius works to keep him from going to the imperial court.
Long Description: 
The invitation to the imperial court still hasn't arrived. Money is short, and Devilius manipulates the innkeeper to demand the hotel bill from Amadeus' father, Leopold, in advance. Leopold has no other option but to return to Salzburg. Amadeus attempts to meet the Empress during a visit to the opera, without success. As the Mozarts make their way home in an oxcart, the invitation to the imperial court finally arrives! In a race against time, the misled innkeeper tries to reach the Mozarts to bring them back. Will Devilius still stand in the way of Amadeus' appearance at the court, or could Amadeus end up receiving a kiss from the Empress herself? The Music: "Cassation" K. 63; "Turkish March" from Piano Sonata "Rondo alla Turca" K. 331; et al. Additional Content: In this episode, Amadeus and his family find themselves in several locations of Vienna, once the cultural capital in Europe (next to Paris). Monti shares information about this city, including its buildings, squares and the famous St. Stephen's Cathedral.
