Le Nozze Di Figaro (CD)

Item# 1000001513

"This is the first opera I fell in love with. Thomas Allen, Kiri Te Kanawa, and Frederica von Stade may be the greatest Count, Countess, and Cherubino ever recorded. With Georg Solti at the helm, this is Mozartian music-making of the highest order."
- Nathaniel

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.
