A charming, expressive and witty Figaro
Certificate: none
Running Time: 261 mins
Retail Price: £29.99
Release Date:

Lorenzo da Ponte`s libretto and Mozart`s music were to transform the stock characters of the opera buffa tradition into real human beings, making Le Nozze di Figaro one of the most sophisticated operas of all time. A charming, expressive and witty Figaro, Lorenzo Regazzo leads a sparkling cast to illustrate superbly the timeless humanity of this masterpiece. Christoph Marthaler`s take on Mozart`s classic is both daringly original and highly contemporary, the setting transposed to a wedding-dress shop lit with neon lights and a shabby register office.
