LE NOZZE DI FIGARO

Opera buffa in four acts - 1786

Composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte.
In Italian with English and German surtitles.

Premiere at 26. October 2017

The marriage of Figaro and Susanna is imminent. However, when Figaro learns that his betrothed is being courted by another, a dangerous game of intrigue and exposure begins. The extent to which the work’s protagonists are caught up in a dense web of emotional dependency becomes ever clearer. In Le nozze di Figaro [The Marriage of Figaro] Mozart shows that it is love that sometimes inflicts the deepest wounds – and that healing is only available to one prepared to offer himself to the other in total surrender. This opera, first performed in 1786, deals with a timeless theme: the both confusing and fascinating complexity of human relationships.
