Le nozze di Figaro

Opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

In Italian language with German and English surtitles

Figaro, the Count’s servant, has become engaged to Susanna, the Countess’s maid. The Count is stalking Susanna. Figaro hatches a plan to put the count in his place. After a “mad day” of disguises, misunderstandings and other comical complications, Figaro gets his Susanna and the Count has no choice but to apologize to the Countess.

Lotte de Beer: “Le nozze di Figaro is primarily a comedy about sex and power. Since the rise of the MeToo movement, many people have looked back critically at the role these issues have played over the last decades. In our interpretation of Le nozze we examine the different perspectives on sex and power from the point of view of different characters in the opera.”
