Le Nozze di Figaro

Haus für Mozart, Salzburg. 2015

Le Nozze di Figaro


“It worked magnificently, thanks to the stellar acting and vocal abilities of a glamorous cast, let loose on Alex Eales’s ingenious multi-level set, which depicted a dozen or so different locations in the Almaviva Palace, including the wine cellar, kitchen and the servants’ dining quarters.”

“The Salzburg Festival has seen over 20 productions of Le nozze di Figaro since 1922 and directors such as Walter Felsenstein, Günter Rennert, Michael Hampe and Jean-Pierre Ponnelle have all made memorable interpretations of Mozart’s masterwork. Sven-Eric Bechtolf’s latest exegesis can easily withstand comparisons to these legendary productions, in no small measure due to English set designer Alex Eales’ visually entertaining staging.”
