"...an outstanding and substantive discussion of Da Ponte's role in creating the libretto of Figaro...The synopsis of the plot includes significant musical factors, although not at the expense of an engaging narrative flow." James P. Fairleigh, Notes
Le Nozze di Figaro (1786) contains a remarkable mixture of all those elements that go to produce a good opera: a sound plot, a well-structured text and fine music. This opera handbook examines the work from historical and musical perspectives, to set it in the context of Mozart's age.
