For all his versatility as a composer, what Mozart loved most passionately was to write operas. His uncanny genius for suggesting a character in music, for exploring the many-leveled, contradictory dimensions of our humanity, makes Mozart the Shakespeare of the lyric theater, and his best operas possess a time-cheating endurance that few artists ever achieve. Follow our Get Started in Classical feature--which includes an audio tour--to explore the opera music of Mozart.

REPORT FROM THE SAN FRANCISCO OPERA
Stravinsky liked to fancy himself an antipode to Wagner, but
a revival of the beloved David Hockney production of his
opera "The Rake's Progress" stood side by side with a new
production of "Parsifal" by avant-garde director Nikolaus
Lehnhoff in intriguing counterpoint this summer at the San
Francisco Opera. Amazon.com editor Thomas May paid a visit.
The year 2000 seems to be the time to plunge into the music
of J.S. Bach--if you haven't already become an addict--as
the music world commemorates the 250th anniversary of Bach's
death. The actual date--July 28--has been anticipated with
concerts, festivals, and a cornucopia of releases.
