Opera in four acts. Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Stephen Medcalf's superb production of Le nozze di Figaro opened on the 60th anniversary of the first performance at Glyndebourne, inaugurating the new opera house. Mozart's comedy presents a scenario where society overcomes its differences - social, sexual, generational - through the exercise of the humane values of mutual understanding, respect and forgiveness.
