Mozart’s supreme masterpiece. A woman’s wit rescues a fading love.

Mozart’s immortal comic opera, performed continuously in opera houses throughout the world. The staging by Andreas Homoki imagines the opera in the unsettled society of France on the eve of the Revolution, and with simple sets and precise tempo skillfully delineates the relationships among the principal characters. The 2003 debut of this production won universal acclaim from the press. The entire opera is replete with the finest music, from the delightful overture and the arias “Porgi, amor, qualche ristoro” (Grant, love, some comfort) and “Non piú andrai” (No more gallivanting), to the brilliant ensembles that adorn the finales of the second and fourth acts.


A former barber and now a servant of Count Almaviva, Figaro is going to marry Susanna, a servant of the Countess. Although the Count has already given up the right of the first night (the lord’s right to share the first marriage night with his servant’s bride in place of the servant), the Count, who fancies Susanna, intends to reclaim the right. The Countess laments that her husband’s love for her is cooling. Therefore, the Countess, Figaro and Susanna all conspire to outwit the Count. They use Susanna’s clothes to disguise Cherubino, a page at puberty, as a woman and try to lure out the Count…
