Le Nozze di Figaro

5th - 27th August 2017



Le Nozze di Figaro for Chamber Opera

The play takes place in the time before the French Revolution as the entire society of the Ancien Régime is faced with fundamental changes. It reflects the confrontation between representatives of the three classes of that era: the nobility, the clergy and the bourgeoisie.

The libretto of this musical theatre masterpiece harks back to Beaumarchais’ comedy La folle journée ou le mariage de Figaro. The comedy by Beaumarchais was politically more charged and had the corresponding effect at that time. In the Le Nozze di Figaro opera, especially the psychological correlations of the non-revolutionary aspects are in the foreground. Figaro becomes a revolutionary in order to defend his love. Mozart and Da Ponte designed the material in an extremely differentiated psychological manner. The conflicts that arise between the persons are more deeply elaborated upon than in Beaumarchais.
