THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO by WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART

Le nozze di Figaro è una delle più famose opere di Mozart, ed è la prima di una serie di felici collaborazioni tra Mozart e Da Ponte, che ha portato anche alla creazione del Don Giovanni e Così fan tutte. Fu Mozart stesso a portare una copia della commedia di Beaumarchais a Da Ponte, che la tradusse in lingua italiana (tuttora la lingua ufficiale dell'opera lirica) e che (d'accordo con Mozart) rimosse tutti gli elementi di satira politica dalla storia.

Join us at Lyric as the resourceful Figaro gets ready to marry his lovely Susanna - and endeavors to get his fiancée to the altar with her virtue still intact! His boss, the Count, has designs on Susanna and sees no reason to let her escape his noble snare, even if it means breaking the heart of his own long-suffering bride. But there's rebellion in the air in a comedy that boasts more salon drama and backroom maneuverings than a whole season of Downton Abbey.
