** ''Mozart'' ends on a BittersweetEnding with the composer's death and a celebration of his immortality via art. ''Schikaneder'' ends on a HappilyEverAfter with ''The Magic Flute'' being a rousing success, Emanuel having undergone CharacterDevelopment, and Eleonore being credited as an equal creative force.

* EsotericHappyEnding: The show ends on a triumphant note, with the Schikaneders getting back together, and ''The Magic Flute'' was a rousing success that gave the world "the greatest work ever written by Wolfgang Amadè Mozart". In real life, however... Mozart died only shortly after the premiere. Emanuel continued to cheat on Eleonore (resulting in at least one illegitimate son, Franz). His career went downhill again, and he died in poverty in 1812. Eleonore passed away three years after her husband, in the Theater an der Wien itself - Emanuel's brainchild, and where ''The Magic Flute'' premiered.
