Between the autumn of 1767 and the end of the following year Mozart was in Vienna with his father Leopold. In the capital of the empire he composed a few pages of sacred music and some symphony but above all he was able to attend the works of the most illustrious masters of his time, assimilating their lessons quickly and naturally. La finta semplice, a playful drama in three acts on an original libretto by Carlo Goldoni adapted by Marco Coltellini, was commissioned from a Mozart who was little more than a child by Giuseppe II. But the gesture of the emperor aroused not a few discontent and envy in the Viennese musical environment, so much so that the debut of the opera, after repeated postponements, did not take place in Vienna as expected but in Salzburg in 1769. Despite his very young age and little theatrical experience , Mozart in La finta Semplice already proves to master the stylistic features of the Italian comic opera with ease. To the subject of Goldonian origin, already a guarantee of dramaturgical brilliance, the very young composer adds a lively and bubbly musical imprint worthy of the most famous enfant prodige in Europe.
