Notes and Editorial Reviews
From the mythological setting of Idomeneo via the sparkling wit of Le nozze di Figaro and powerful tragicomedy of Don Giovanni to the fantastical workings of the late Singspiel Die Zauberflote, Mozart’s mature operas stand among the greatest achievements of Western art, dramas that illuminate the composer’s creativity as a whole and which stood out in their own time for the new level of characterization, humour and lessons on life and humanity they brought to the musical stage. This collection is being re-released to coincide with the 225th anniversary of Mozart’s death and bundled with a bonus production of the rarely performed gem Mitridate.
