The Marriage of Figaro
(Le nozze di Figaro)
The Marriage of Figaro is a comic opera in four acts by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Italian libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, and is based on Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais’s 1784 play Le Mariage de Figaro.
Set in Count Almaviva’s castle in Seville in the late 18th Century, The Marriage of Figaro is a sequel to his earlier play, Il Barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville), familiar to opera audiences through Rossini’s great opera. With Mozart’s masterpiece of a score, the result is a witty yet profound tale of love, betrayal and forgiveness.
Three of the greatest operas ever written were collaborations between composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and librettist Lorenzo da Ponte: The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte. Dubai Opera presents three masterpieces with brand new specially commissioned productions. Delve into outlandish plots filled with humour, betrayal, deception, seduction and above all sublime music over three magical evenings.
