About

In few words:

Le Nozze di Figaro is one of the repertoire's most emblematic works. Brahms spoke of it as a “miracle” and the Countess’s lament resounds even today as one of the most heart‑breaking passages in musical history. It was in taking up Beaumarchais’ comedy, a play that sparked off a scandal in Parisian society, that Mozart and his librettist, da Ponte, began their collaboration, although the play had already been forbidden by the Emperor Joseph II at the Vienna theatre in 1785. Was this because it exposed all too publicly the contradictions of an already tottering regime, soon to be swept away by the French Revolution? Neita Jones’s new production conserves the essence of Beaumarchais’s play, questioning human relationships with mischievous humour in a production that confuses reality and fiction to such an extent that, like the Count, we wonder, “Are we acting out a play?”
