Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro (concert performance)
Free pre-concert talk at 6.00pm
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’ 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, our concert performance at the Barbican on 4 July promises an evening of laughter, throwing the spotlight onto Mozart’s glorious music, with its much-loved arias and breathtakingly intricate ensembles.
