Glyndebourne Opera

Le Nozze di Figaro 12A

Tue 7 Nov, 7pm


Synopsis

Glyndebourne’s highly-acclaimed 2012 production of Le Nozze di Figaro will be shown in selected cinemas this autumn.

It truly is ‘a mad day’ at Count Almaviva’s estate just outside Seville as plots and promises are made and broken, hopes are raised and dashed, and disguises are donned and exposed, all to the strains of some of Mozart’s most sparkling and sublime music.

Mozart based this evergreen comedy, his first full-scale collaboration with the great librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, on ‘La folle journée ou le mariage de Figaro’ (‘A Mad Day or Figaro’s Wedding’). It is set in an upstairs-downstairs world populated by servants who aren’t servile and the masters they outsmart.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
