Storyline

Two incomplete opera buffo fragments composed by Mozart three years before Figaro, Lo Sposo Deluso (The Deluded Bridegroom), which details the travails of a deluded bridegroom and L'Oca del Cairo (The Goose from Cairo) about a girl imprisoned in a tower by her father, suffered from weak plots and librettos. Director Joachim Schlomer got round this by having a master of ceremonies in a non-singing role explaining the intricacies of the plots. Despite glorious ensembles and melodies from the mature Mozart, these operas never achieved popularity. Written by Watch_Movies

Another superb documentary from Mr. Palmer
4 September 2006 | by wynne-1See all my reviews

I never cease to marvel at Tony Palmer's incredible gift for making films. This comprehensive, enthralling film about the Salzburg Festival continues to add to his impressive body of work. While other filmmakers reap more publicity and probably make more money, Tony Palmer quietly produces masterpiece after masterpiece.

If Tony Palmer isn't among the finest filmmakers in the world, then I'll eat my hat: the same hat I've taken off (after Robert Schumann's decree) in acknowledgment of his genius.

Thankfully, more and more of this great artist's work is becoming available on DVD. There are still some masterpieces forthcoming, such as ENGLAND, MY ENGLAND. Keep them coming, is all I can say.

Bravo.
