Notes & Reviews:

Kultur is proud to present Mozart from the intimate setting of Sweden's Drottningholm Court Theatre, providing a perfect stage for these operas and featuring excellent casts and superb directors, accompanied by period instruments for a truly authentic experience.

This perfect exposition presented Mozart with three classic buffo roles an amorous old man a wily maid and a handsome young gardener. The Cavaliere offers a serious role à la opera seria. And a female gardener who is finta in other words a fake is a mezzo carattere the title given in opera buffa to roles that are allowed to alternate between the comic and the serious between sentimentality and drama. But Mozart takes even the heartaches of his comic characters remarkably seriously and with its clever changes between major and minor keys this introductory scene is anything but clichéd.
