    I don't know how to feel about this libretto Not particularly entertaining or interesting so I'm curious to see if I will like the opera However I really enjoyed this version of the libretto The Opera Classics Library has a great and in depth commentary and analysis section

    One of my absolute favorite operas I fell in love with it even after I read this for a university class that interpreted it in the context of the hero's journey

    Although a nice background work on Mozart's famous opera this is probably better suited for specifically opera oriented audiences
