Two short plays about Mozart by Alexander Pushkin, taken from his Little Tragedies.
"Mozart and Salieri," conceived the year after Salieri's death in 1836, dramatizes the theory that the older composer poisoned Mozart out of jealousy.
"The Stone Guest" is Pushkin's re-telling of the plot of Mozart's Don Giovanni, with a number of changes.
