Bastien und Bastienne was Mozart's first German Singspiel. This genre, with sung arias and ensembles interspersed with spoken dialogue, seems to have more in common with the modern Broadway musical than 18th-century Italian opera. It was a form which Mozart would significantly develop, and the one which would reward him during his lifetime with his most popular stage works.
