Description

The Metropolitan Opera Presents: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro
Libretto, Background, and Photos

Release Date: 09/2/2014

“The Metropolitan Opera Presents: Le Nozze di Figaro” provides all the information you’ll need to appreciate Mozart’s opera, whether you’re at the Met, watching it online, as a Live in HD presentation, or listening on the radio.

Today Mozart's exquisite Le Nozze di Figaro delights and moves audiences everywhere, long after its 1786 birth into tumultuous times. The original Beaumarchais play raised a firestorm in France, then on the brink of revolution, with its dangerous commentary on class relations. However, Lorenzo Da Ponte carefully omitted anything political from his opera libretto; what remained, when joined with Mozart's sublime and penetrating music, was a witty yet profound tale of infatuation, heartache, scheming, and tenderness, where complex emotions are laid bare and everyone, regardless of class, is equally vulnerable to the powers of love.

Each book in the Metropolitan Opera Presents series features the complete libretto, current and historic images from Met productions, an introductory “In Focus” feature, and the full Met program notes.
