An example is the second aria of Susanna in Mozart's `Le Nozze di
Figaro', bar 16:

   f2     f8  e8       g8        c8

  fin -- chè l'a -- "ria è an" -- cor

Almost all singers I've met during my work as a coach have problems if
they sing it the first time :-)

However, I've *never* seen lyric ties in any edition of Mozart, be it
Urtext or something else.
