Product Description


'With its expert handling of evidence of all kinds, Rice's study must count as the best portrait yet of Mozart as a man of the theatre, sharply and convincingly drawn.' Eighteenth-Century Music

Book Description

Presenting a fresh view of Mozart's achievements as a composer for the stage, John A. Rice considers Mozart's place in the operatic culture of his time. Linking the operas by topics, this book follows the processes that Mozart went through as he brought his operas from commission to performance.

HASH(0xa3c060cc) out of 5 stars Interesting overview of Mozart's work for the theater March 21 2010
By W. Billingham - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Mozart on the Stage" has lots of information about the genesis of Mozart's stage works, grouped in a unique way - instead of dealing with each opera in turn, Rice treats each aspect (commission, theater, singers, etc.) in its own chapter. This does allow for a different perspective on Mozart's stage world, but can be frustrating if the reader's interest lies particularly in one opera. There is a lot of information presented, especially gathering contemporary quotes, but I found the coverage superficial.
