Barber, poet, schemer, matchmaker and general town factotum: no challenge seems too big or small for Figaro. And when he decides to bring Rosina and Almaviva together against Bartolo's better wishes, chaos is certainly on his side. Rossini's setting of the first part of Beaumarchais' delightful Figaro trilogy is alive with comedy and sparkling compositional wit, yet it foreshadows the more socially critical undertones which become more apparent in Mozart's setting of the second part, "Le nozze di Figaro". This production marks actor-director Tilo Nest's ("Tyll", "Schockheaded Peter") fist foray into opera direction.

PREMIERE 5 September 2020
