Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro

Academy of Ancient Music

Portrait of Richard Egarr

An irresistible blend of musical wit and social satire, Figaro is Mozart’s operatic masterpiece. AAM and a cast of Europe’s brightest young artists breathe vibrant new life into this classic opera.

A score fizzing with life and melody brings song to Beaumarchais’s provocative play, and colour to his captivating cast of characters – from the lascivious Count and bombastic Dr Bartolo to the gawky teenage Cherubino, charismatic Figaro and of course his clever wife-to-be Susanna.

Coming fresh from a brand-new production by Martin Lloyd-Evans at The Grange Festival, this concert performance promises an evening of laughter, throwing the spotlight onto Mozart’s glorious music with its much-loved arias and breathtakingly intricate ensembles.

The performance will have a 20-minute interval and finish at approximately 10.15pm.

In association with The Grange Festival. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

Pre-concert talk, 6pm
