On Mozart's death, Anton Mesmer and Benjamin Franklin come to Constanze Mozart claiming ownership of Mozart's glass harmonica. The resolution of the conflicting claims involves a bitter argument, a duel, and an appearance by the Ghost of Mozart. The opera is preceded by an informational performance by glass harmonicist Dennis James.
