Don Giovanni (Opera Guides) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

A guide to one of Mozart's most significant and popular operas is presented alongside critical commentary and a rare glimpse into Mozart's personal letters


Beginning with a discussion by Michael F. Robinson on the comic elements of the opera, this complete and fascinating guide presents a varied selection of scholarly criticism on one of Mozart's most famous works. An overall view of the score by David Wyn Jones follows the introduction to show how Mozart maintained dramatic momentum over two long acts and provide an overview of the dramatic pacing and orchestration in some of the most important scenes. Christopher Raeburn concludes the commentary with an engaging portrait of Da Ponte, Mozart's "libertine librettist," and his relationship with the composer. Also included is a selection of unique letters between Mozart and his father written during the opera's composition.
