Opera

Le Nozze
di Figaro

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Presentation

The ‘mad day’ of the wedding of Susanna and Figaro, employees of, respectively, the Countess and Count Almaviva. The latter will do anything to seduce the young fiancée and possess her before she gets married, but his plans are thwarted by Figaro and by the adolescent Cherubino, who flits around the women. In the end, Susanna and the Countess untangle this web of romantic intrigue and contrive a cunning challenge to male domination. 

This production is the first episode of our Trilogia Mozart Da Ponte.
La Monnaie takes up the challenge to stage the three operas by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte together in the form of a trilogy. While each of these masterpieces can be viewed independently of the others, the directors Clarac-Delœuil > le lab and conductor Antonello Manacorda have reimagined them jointly as one single work. A human comedy in three parts, presenting a large number of interlinked characters and plots.
