Mozart’s classic comedy Le Nozze Di Figaro has a wealth of famous numbers and gives the chance for especially fine singing.

While the attempts of Figaro to protect his betrothed Susanna from the designs of Count Almaviva provide the starting point for Le Nozze Di Figaro, the action soon draws in the entire chateau household to reveal poignant undercurrents.

The setting of David McVicar’s production in 1830, with sumptuous and realistic designs, provides the perfect backdrop for the unresolved tensions between the classes of Revolutionary Europe. Whether enjoyed for its wit and sparkle, its emotional depth or sheer musical pleasure, Le Nozze Di Figaro is one of the masterpieces of classical opera.

Le Nozze Di Figaro is performed as part of the Royal Opera House’s Olympic Programme, which includes all three of the operas created by Mozart and librettist Lorenzo da Ponte.

Le Nozze Di Figaro is sung in Italian with English surtitles.
