StreamingSundays broadcast | Le nozze di Figaro
The 6th broadcast of AAM’s StreamingSundays full-concert series, Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro takes centre stage at London’s Barbican Hall. Revealing truth, virtue and beauty as no other opera. Figaro is Mozart’s operatic masterpiece, an irresistible blend of musical wit and social satire. ‘The best opera ever written by a human being’ has the capacity to be as transformative an experience as can be had in a theatre.
A score fizzing with life and melody brings song to Beaumarchais’ provocative play, and colour to his captivating cast of characters – from the lascivious Count and bombastic Dr Bartolo to the gawky teenage Cherubino, charismatic Figaro and of course his endlessly resourceful wife-to-be Susanna.
Fresh from The Grange Festival’s new production by Martin Lloyd-Evans, who created the magical Mansfield Park at The Grange in 2017 , this semi-staged concert is conducted by Richard Egarr and promises an evening of laughter, throwing a light on Mozart’s glorious music with its much-loved arias and breathtakingly intricate ensembles.
