Even those who normally resist opera in translation should try it: Jeremy Sam's lively translation is so refreshing in the context of a performance outstandingly well cast. David Parry has established his Mozart credentials in earlier issues, and his timing of the comedy here is impeccable.

Editorial Reviews

Classic FM Magazine - Emma Baker
[October 2004 Disc of the Month] It’s the perfect way to get to know this sparkling social comedy without having to learn 18th-century Italian. The text, translated by Jeremy Sams, is witty and apt and, most importantly, you can hear almost every word – vital, for what is, on one level, an 18th-century bedroom farce.
