Le Nozze di Figaro

Le Nozze di Figaro / Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

[New production]

Opera buffa
in four acts
Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte after The Mad Day, or the Marriage of Figaro by Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais
Premiered on 1st May 1786 in Vienna

Under the cover of mix-ups, misunderstandings and set traps, Le Nozze di Figaro subtly evokes the different facets of love. A libertine predator, passionate adolescent and young fiancé are at the mercy of women’s charm and wit. It was the first opera concocted jointly by Mozart and Da Ponte and blends light-heartedness and melancholy in a twilight world. We can make out the fires of the French Revolution in the distance. This fantastic whimsy, this opera buffa, carries the disturbing pulse of new blood. The end of the old world order is nigh. Masks and heads may roll, but desire, jealousy and heartbreak live on. Stage Director Ludovic Lagarde, Director at the Comédie in Reims, is directing at the OnR for the first time and Patrick Davin, Musical Director of the Mulhouse Symphony Orchestra, is conducting the musicians.
