Concert | Mozart In Vienna: Le Nozze di Figaro
May 19, 2016
Mozart In Vienna presents an opera from Mozart. Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) debuted in Vienna, Austria on May 1, 1786. Mozart's comic masterpiece about love and marriage in the "upstairs downstairs" castle of the Count and Countess Almaviva thrills with Mozart's most magnificent melodies, glorious arias, comic fun and the timeless message of love, fidelity and forgiveness. This special performance celebrates the 230th anniversary debut of Mozart's greatest opera, and shines with internationally-acclaimed singers, costumes and chamber ensemble in Italian with English narration.
The mission of Mozart In Vienna is to present music that Mozart composed or debuted in Vienna, Austria. The years he lived and composed in Vienna are considered some of his most prolific and fruitful, resulting in an abundance of great operas, including Le Nozze di Figaro, and several other notable works. Mozart In Vienna also celebrates Mozart's entrepreneurial spirit, relentless tenacity and his passion for sharing his music with the world, often in spite of astounding opposition and difficulties.
