“Zombie Amadeus”

  

Description from FrancescaMaria S: It was a cold Halloween night in St. Marx Cemetery in Vienna, when skeletons and zombies woke up for their yearly stroll around the city.
Emerging from his gravestone, Amadeus combed his hair with his hands and tried to smooth the red silk jacket and the lace jabot. "There are bloodstains everywhere", he thought, "but after over two hundred years I'm still elegant!".
He heard a cheerful melody, reminding him of a symphony he composed, followed by a flap of wings: a robin perched on the angel on guard of Amadeus's tomb, recognized him and tweeted a greeting. "I'd like to go home, birdie", said the musician, "could you show me the way?". The robin went with the composer and easily found the house in the Domgasse: "I suppose you meant this house when you said "home", but it's a Museum now...". The main door was closed, apparently locked, but a string quartet was playing inside and the music could be heard from a window. "Well, if we can't go to the concert, let's have a slice of Sachertorte", said the birdie. "What's that?", asked Amadeus. "The best chocolate cake in the world, you'll love it!".

(Based on a true story ;) )
