Synopsis

Mozart's music makes Le Nozze Di Figaro one of the finest jewels in the opera repertory, with a wealth of famous melodies that start from the familiar first notes of the energetic Overture.

A London highlight of the celebrations for the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth, David McVicar's spellbinding production illuminates Mozart's masterpiece shifting the action to a French chateau in the aftermath of the 1830 revolution. At the tragic heart of the opera, Gerald Finley's suave, dashingly self-absorbed Count and Dorothea Röschmann's passionately dignified Countess are deadlocked in a romantic contest that impacts dramatically on the court's feisty valet Figaro (Erwin Schrott) and his fiancé, the sassy Susanna (Miah Persson).
