Die Hochzeit des Figaro
Direction and Stage: Marco Arturo Marelli
In 1785, Mozart and his librettist Da Ponte turned to a revolutionary French play: Beaumarchais’s comedy "The Mad Day". The manservant Figaro and his master, Count Almaviva, become opponents when Almaviva starts pursuing Figaro’s intended bride. The explosive conflict between the nobility and the middle class is played out in the private sphere - as a struggle between the frivolous arrogance of the master and the honest feeling of the servant. "The Marriage of Figaro" has thus become a timelessmasterpiece. Marelli’s stage is an artful combination of two Baroque paintings and Dagmar Niefind‘s modernised Rococo costumes lend the production a simple elegance.
