‘I heard an opera buffa by that wondrous genius Mozart; it is called La finta giardiniera… He is bound to grow into one of the greatest musical composers who ever lived,’ wrote CFD Schubart in January 1775 after the premiere of Mozart’s eighth stage work – two weeks before his 19th birthday. In its musical depth, brilliant act finales, tangled love triangles, disguises, symmetries, mixed social classes and serious undercurrents La finta giardiniera displays the seeds of Mozart’s mature operatic comedies Le nozze di Figaro and Così fan tutte.
