The Maltings Theatre and Cinema
Le nozze di Figaro’s confident mix of sharply drawn characters, heartfelt passion, and fizzing comedy shows Mozart at his absolute theatrical best. It’s Figaro’s wedding day, and it’s just becoming clear that his master, the Count, has set his sights on bride-to-be Susanna. The Countess is heartbroken, and the other servants are all relentlessly persuing their own agendas... Mozart’s glorious score effortlessly drives the plot's rollercoaster mix of vivacious humour, sexual intrigue, mistaken identity and unexpected revelation towards a touching finale of forgiveness and joy. In a world where position is everything and the divide between Upstairs and Downstairs is sacrosanct, Lorenzo da Ponte’s sensational libretto (based on Beaumarchais’ controversial play) challenges the dynamics of class and social hierarchy through an increasingly hilarious spiral of events on a single, very special, day. Sung in italian. This event is taking place at Berwick Guildhall.
