Le Nozze di Figaro
A profoundly humane comedy, Le Nozze di Figaro is a remarkable marriage of Mozart’s music at the height of his genius and one of the best librettos ever set. World premiere: Burgtheater, Vienna, 1786. Met premiere: January 31, 1894.
 
Composer
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791)

Setting
Seville, the setting of Figaro and its prequel, The Barber of Seville, was famous in Mozart’s time as a place filled with hot-blooded young men and exotically beautiful women sequestered behind latticed windows, or “jalousies” (which gave us our English word “jealousy”).

Met History
Le Nozze di Figaro established itself in the Met repertoire with the 1940 revival starring Ezio Pinza in the title role. The quintessential ensemble opera, it has seen memorable appearances by some of the world’s greatest singers.
