In 1775 a teenage Mozart caught the operatic world by storm when he wrote La finta giardiniera, his youthful masterpiece of disguise, deception and the redemptive power of love. Five years later, he revised it as a Singspiel which remained the only known complete score until the Italian version was rediscovered in the late 1970s.
Following his enormous success conducting Orphee aux Enfers, Russel Braun returns to the podium to lead the singers of U of T Opera in the original Italian version of La finta giardiniera with direction by Michael Patrick Albano.
