Synopsis:

This wise and friendly guide to Mozart’s operas encompasses the full range of his most popular works―Figaro, Don Giovanni, Così, Magic Flute, Seraglio, Clemenza di Tito―as well as lesser known works like Mitridate and Il re Pastore. Music historian Mary Hunter provides a lively introduction to each opera for any listener who has enjoyed a performance, either on the stage or in a video recording, and who wishes to understand the opera more fully.

 

The Companion includes a synopsis and commentary on each work, as well as background information on the three main genres in which Mozart wrote: opera seria, opera buffa, and Singspiel. An essay on the “anatomy” of a Mozart opera points out the musical conventions with which the composer worked and suggests nontechnical ways to think about his musical choices. The book also places modern productions of the operas in historical context and explores how modern directors, producers, and conductors present Mozart’s works today. Filled with factual information and interesting issues to ponder while watching a performance, this guide will appeal to newcomers and seasoned opera aficionados alike.

About the Author:

Mary Hunter is A. Leroy Greason Professor of Music, Bowdoin College, and author of The Culture of Opera Buffa in Mozart’s Vienna. She lives in Lewiston, ME.
