Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is considered a universal genius, and his life continues to be intriguing.

We explore the wonders of Baroque art: the sumptuous palaces of Vienna, the most beautiful opera houses in Europe, and even the Ch√Ęteau de Versailles where, at age 6, Mozart surprised Louis XV with his precociousness. But he refused to comply with the Court's demands and became one of the first "freelance" musicians.

SECRETS OF HISTORY also reveals his many love affairs and the mysteries surrounding his death. Did Salieri, his famous rival, play a role at the end of his life?
