Le nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni and Die Zauberflöte are three of Mozart’s most remarkable and popular operas. What is common to the first two, during his period of Italian operas, are the librettos by Lorenzo da Ponte, forming one of the happiest collaborations in the history of music. What is more, in any of these pieces it is possible to make out the Austrian composer’s dazzling inventiveness and his genius ability to harmonise his musical discourse with the corresponding narrative needs and requirements. With The Magic Flute, his final work within the genre, Mozart would accentuate the enormous contribution he made to the future development of opera in the German language.
