Le nozze di Figaro

Synopsis

Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro is one of those operas whose plot cannot simply be stated in brief. That’s why it’s best to do without it altogether. However, Austrian actor and cabaret artist Alfred Dorfer – known to many for his film adventure India – proves in his first opera production at the Theater an der Wien that the libretto is still highly topical. “Le nozze is a piece about love and power, power without love as well as love without power” (Alfred Dorfer). The stellar cast is led by veteran Count Almaviva, embodied by Vienna favorite Florian Boesch, the Concentus Musicus performs under the direction of Stefan Gottfried a shortened version, which was performed exclusively for the recording. “Alfred Dorfer’s first opera production (…) scores with transparency and lightness.” Der Standard
