Product Synopsis

This book presents Mozart's seven major librettos, translated into verse with a sparkling poetic quality that matches the magnificence of the originals. Beginning this epic endeavour with his translation of The Magic Flute, first introduced at the Metropolitan Opera, J.D. McClatchy has now completed his translations of Idomeneo, The Abduction from the Seraglio, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, Cosi Fan Tutte and La Clemenza di Tito. The result is a brilliantly translated and handsomely designed volume that brings the lively wordplay and drama of the originals to life in verse that matches the exuberance and lyricism of the original Da Ponte, Schikaneder, Varesco, Mazzola and Stephanie librettos. With facing-page text and an illuminating introduction to each opera-including a dramatic recap, a history of the opera and a list of characters-this book is a masterpiece.
