One of our users seeks leads on translations of Mozart's operas
(those originally in Italian). Most libretti are too "poetic"
and not literal enough for her needs.
Ellen Bleiler's translation of Don Giovanni suits her needs
beautifully. Can anyone supply information on equivalent
translations of Idomeneo, Le nozze di Figaro, Cosi fan tutte, and
La clemenza di Tito? If not the entire libretto, then
translations of the duets alone? Please reply to LOGANT@LAFAYETT
