When Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart died in 1791 at the age of just 35, he nonetheless left behind the defining composition in every available musical genre of his time: symphony, chamber music, masses, and above all - opera. Opera was the prestige genre of the era, and the thought of it, Mozart wrote, made him "beside myself at once." It was a form he loved dearly, depending on it heavily for personal, professional, artistic, and financial reasons of the greatest weight. Artistically, the world of the operatic stage spoke deeply to his primal instinct for play, his taste for fantasy, and his restless creative imagination. And in this rich series of eight entertaining lectures, you'll learn how his operas vied with one another for the acclaim reserved for the greatest achievements of human artistic striving: Idomeneo , The Abduction from the Harem , The Marriage of Figaro , Cosi fan tutte , Don Giovanni , and The Magic Flute , which premiered only ten weeks before his untimely death. In addition to summarizing Mozart's life and artistic development, the lectures focus on two of his greatest masterpieces, Cosi fan tutte and The Magic Flute , to help you understand more fully the height of Mozart's operatic achievement.
