Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro
One of Mozart’s most enduring masterpieces, Le Nozze di Figaro premiered in Vienna in 1786, the first of the composer’s three collaborations with librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte (Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte were to follow). The opera never left the repertoire and for more than two centuries has attracted many of the world’s greatest singers. First seen at the Met in 1894, Figaro opens the company’s 2014–15 season in a new production.
