Mozart's little-known one-act comic opera 'The Impresario' was commissioned by the Emperor Joseph II of Austria for a winter party he was giving. The libretto by Johann Gottleib Stephanie (The Younger) is about the tribulations of an impresario trying to mount a performance of an opera, so it is likely Mozart, hard at work on 'The Marriage of Figaro', derived a certain wry satisfaction from setting it.
This is the Schirmer edition of the Vocal Score, with an English adaptation by Giovanni Cardelli.
