The notes are clear and easy to read, but the font for the text is quite small, and to make matters worse, this edition (Dover Vocal Scores) gives Italian as the primary language (immediatly below the notes). The German text is in italics *under* the Italian. If you buy this edition, you're going to need an English copy of the libretto - all the text (lyrics, stage directions, and unsung diologue) are given in German and Italian.

Beautifull music for Sopran (Pamina and Queen of the night) and for Bariton (Papageno). (Also Tenor (Tamino) and Bas (Sarastro))
The book has all the highlights from the opera, clearly writen for Piano and Vocals. Some bits are easier, some harder, but the music is superb!
