Cabals and Satires

Mozart's Comic Operas in Vienna

Dr. Ian Woodfield

  • Offers a radically new interpretation of Mozart's career as an opera composer in Vienna
  • Reveals a lost libretto by Dittersdorf to be a satirization of Mozart
  • Contradicts the common narrative that Mozart found success only with posterity and struggled to succeed in his own time
