    perhaps no opera is as closely and affectionately associated with a single house as Le Nozze di Figaro is with Glyndebourne. Effortlessly witty yet shot through with pain and sadness, this deeply ambivalent day in the life of masters and servants as they scheme and outwit one another was Glyndebourne's opening production in 1934.

    Michael Grandage's staging is the seventh, set in a louche Sixties ambience. Marshalled by the 'ideal pacing' of Robin Ticciati, a youthful cast of principals 'has no weak link' and 'looks gorgeous' (The Sunday Times) in a production that continues Glyndebourne's rewarding history of engagement with Mozart's and Da Ponte's 'day of madness'.

    Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true Surround Sound.
