Opera Notes:

This opera is an example of the German singspiel style, in which sung texts are interspersed with spoken dialogue. Containing many allusions to Free Masonry (of which the composer was a member), this was Mozart's final opera. The music ranges from solemn, to comic, to triumphant, and contains some of the highest and lowest written notes sung in the operatic repertoire.
