Description

Does a happy ending have to be realistic?
Not if we have this much fun on the road towards it!

Figaro is determined to marry Susanna today. But everything seems to go wrong before he finally reaches this goal, and all kinds of absurdities and discords must be overcome before the perhaps most beautiful apology in musical history can be made – “Perdono, perdono…”, pardon, pardon! The complete title of the opera The Marriago of Figaro or The Follies of One Day is something of an understatement: No other tangle of love is quite as unhinged as this one. Director Lydia Steier reveals the characters’ equally frivolous and melancholy desires with the same mixture of opulence and twisted humour that she used to give La Juive and Alcina their distinctive glamour.
