Mozart – LE NOZZE DI FIGARO

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Love, lust and lots of entanglements, combined with Mozart’s enthralling music. Director David Bösch makes his Amsterdam debut with LE NOZZE DI FIGARO. Stéphane Degout, Eleonora Buratto, Christiane Karg and Alex Esposito lead an exceptional cast.

‘This was already the revolution,’ concluded Napoleon when he was asked about Beaumarchais’s comedy THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO. In his play, Beaumarchais ridiculed the French noblesse. The staging of FIGARO was promptly prohibited. Nevertheless – or maybe therefore – Mozart chose to make it the source of his most famous opera buffa.

 

 

 

 

The plot of LE NOZZE DI FIGARO is set some years after the actions of THE BARBER OF SEVILLE that later was adapted into an opera by Rossini in 1816. Count Almaviva is making advances to Susanna, his wife’s maid who is madly in love with his servant Figaro. The Count and Doctor Bartolo plot to force Figaro to keep an old wedding promise. But at the same time, the Countess seeks to avenge her spouse’s infidelity and helps Figaro and Susanna to pursue their happiness.

German director David Bösch has made a name for himself in numerous German opera houses and theatres. He staged productions at the Frankfurt Opera, at the Burgtheater in Vienna and, most recently, a MEISTERSINGER VON NÜRNBERG at the Bavarian State Opera. This staging of Mozart’s famous opera buffa is his first in Amsterdam.

Baritone Stéphane Degout sings the role of the lecherous Count Almaviva, Eleonora Buratto performs as the Countess. Figaro is portrayed by Alex Esposito who has sung roles of the Mozartian repertoire on some of the most famous stages internationally. Christiane Karg makes her debut at Dutch National Opera in the role of Susanna. The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra plays under the baton of Ivor Bolton.
