have you ever flown to the moon thanks to nothing more than the power of your own imagination? in the summer of 1777, joseph haydn sent the guests at the prince’s wedding in esterházy palace into the fantastic universe with the aid of their imagination, some 190 years before the first moon landing. for il mondo della luna he turned to a source that had already been successfully used for a number of operas and was written originally by the italian comic poet carlo goldoni. haydn created a work focusing on human longings, the fabled moon and a world turned on its head.
