  • This sorely-neglected opera comes from Mozart’s early catalogue. Written in 1774, it tells the story of a Countess who disguises herself as a gardener in order to find and forgive her lover, who thinks he has killed her in a quarrel.

  • The opera contains elements of both opera seria and opera buffa, and contains a rich and full orchestration, with prominent parts for wind in particular being an unusual feature.

  • Stage direction comes from Swedish director Göran Järvefelt, who sadly died the year after this production was staged.

“This production of La finta giardiniera at the Drottningholm Court Theatre fully justified producer Göran Järvefelt's and conductor Arnold Östman's faith in the opera. It proved not only an evening of rare enchantment, but an instructive argument for period performance of Mozart”. The Independent
