Le nozze di Figaro

The Marriage of Figaro
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791)
Opera Buffa in four acts
Sung in Italian, with German surtitles
Libretto: Lorenzo da Ponte, based on "La folle journée ou Le mariage de Figaro" by Pierre Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais
Premiere: 1786 in Vienna

Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro" was the first of his triad of now legendary master operas, all based on works by the Italian Lorenzo Da Ponte. At once a timeless love story, playful comedy and biting social satire, these descriptions alone cannot fully do justice to the masterful stylistic and sensual nuances embodied within Mozart's work. Above all, "Figaro" is a work of upheaval, a symbol of the individual's urge for recognition and rebellion against the establishment.
