The Marriage of Figaro: Deutsche Oper Berlin

About the Event

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's 'The Marriage of Figaro' in a production by Götz Friedrich at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

Figaro and Susanna are servants at the court of Duke Almaviva. Before they can tie the knot, however, they have a series of obstacles to overcome. Mozart's work is one of the most perfectly rounded musical comedies in the history of opera: timeless in its humanity, sophisticated in its treatment of characters, full of surprising developments, and extremely rich in musical ideas. Götz Friedrich's production follows the Mozartian concept, bringing to the opera a psychological perspicacity and an eye for absurdity as the storyline develops. He also displays a feel for human fallibility, the same fallibility that Mozart presents us within his process of critical analysis.
