Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro is an unforgettable opera about love, desire and the primal force of uncontrollable passion. Concluding the Salzburg Festival’s highly successful Mozart / Da Ponte cycle, director Sven-Eric Bechtolf sets this emotional tour de force in a stately English country house during the 1920s. The renowned Vienna Philharmonic ensures an exceptional evening of music from Mozart’s birthplace.
“Everything about the show exuded immediacy and naturalness: the intriguingly updated production by the director Sven-Eric Bechtolf; the winning performances of a compelling cast; and the supple, glowing playing that the conductor Dan Ettinger drew from the Vienna Philharmonic…” - The New York Times
In the hands of Sven-Eric Bechtolf, this final production in the Salzburg Festival’s Mozart / Da Ponte trilogy is a unique evening of inspiring opera. The stage design, spread over two levels showing up to five rooms at the same time, ensures fast-paced, parallel and multi-layered staging possibilities.
Conductor Dan Ettinger’s extraordinary musical sensitivity is truly noteworthy – “…the Vienna Philharmonic committed themselves with refined tonal brilliance and striking phrasing”. (Der Standard)
The soloists are a delight – “the sweet-voiced, appealing soprano Martina Janková”, “the alluring soprano Annett Fritsch” and “the charismatic bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni”. (The New York Times)
