Le nozze di Figaro is rightly regarded as a prime example of a musical comedy. Together with his librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, the 30-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart succeeded in creating an opera that set new standards – with its vitality, its plot reversals at lightning speed, its multiple trials and tribulations and a score that conveys both profound sensitivity and an animated spirit.

With Mozart’s three Da Ponte operas, director Vincent Huguet and conductor Daniel Barenboim embark on a journey through time as the characters evolve and transform. The loves and sufferings of young people, in the form of both real and feigned emotions, come to the stage – whereby in the case of »Figaro«, which forms the second part of this trilogy, these living environments are set in the ’80s with their special style and charm. Pace and situational comedy come to the fore just as much as pensiveness and melancholy. The immense art of differentiation, as so vividly revealed in Mozart’s marvelous work, will also be reflected in the musical and scenic presentation. With »Così fan tutte« and »Don Giovanni«, the other two Da Ponte operas will be staged in the 2021/22 season, as parts one and three of this trilogy conceived especially for the Staatsoper.
