About the event

Upstairs, downstairs, inside, outside, dress-ups and dressing downs, all in a day’s work. Mozart’s classic drama has been entertaining crowds for centuries and between the witty, fast-moving libretto and the melodic, charming writing, it’s not hard to understand why.

Musically, this is the ultimate ensemble opera, with brilliant trios, quartets and even a fantastic sextet. Dramatically, it’s the opera with everything: lovers and liaisons, disguises and tricks, lust and laughter. The Countess loves the Count, but he’s got designs on his pretty, witty servant Susanna. But it’s Susanna’s wedding day, and Figaro has no plans of giving up his bride. During one crazy day of disguises, duplicity, desire and utter madness, the Count is going to get his comeuppance.

Sir David McVicar’s naturalistic staging opens a “comic cauldron of sex and social politics” (Limelight), where the comedy has a dark, sharp edge. Jenny Tiramani’s extraordinary 17th-century designs clothe the aristocracy in ravishing silks and the servants in cornflower blue. A historical fashion specialist, Tiramani’s costumes are stunning in detail and authentic in design. David Finn’s radiant lighting streams through vaulted windows to light enormous rooms in sunlight and moonbeams as day turns to night.

Young soprano Stacey Alleaume continues a thrilling rise with her role debut as Susanna. Andrei Bondarenko reprises his commanding performance as Count Almaviva with Russian soprano Ekaterina Sadovnikova as the Countess. Paolo Bordogna returns with his world-class Figaro, and Guillaume Tourniaire is the maestro.

"Unforgettable, visually radiant"
