"In 1786 Vienna, Lorenzo Da Ponte is the court librettist for the Italian Theatre during the height of the enlightened reign of Emperor Joseph II. This exalted position doesn't mean he's particularly well paid, or even out of reach of the endless intrigues of the opera world. In fact, far from it. One morning, Da Ponte stops off at his barber, only to find the man being taken away to debtor's prison. Da Ponte impetuously agrees to carry a message to his barber's fianc©♭e and try to help her set him free, even though he's facing pressures of his own: he's got one week to finish the libretto for The Marriage of Figaro for Mozart before the opera is premiered for the Emperor himself"--Provided by publisher.
