Editorial Reviews

Perhaps no opera is closely and affectionately associated with a single house as Le nozze di Figaro is with Glyndebourne. Michael Grandage's staging is the seventh production there and is set in a 60s ambiance. Marshaled by the "ideal pacing" of Robin Ticciati, the youthful cast of principals has "no weak link" and "looks gorgeous" (The Sunday Times).

Much like their recent production of Don Giovanni, Glyndebourne's 2012 production of Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro updates the work to the 1960s, finding it to be a period that acts as a good modern equivalent for the changing social attitudes that are to be found in Mozart and Beaumarchais' time. If it's not quite a perfect fit here, it works well enough for the purposes of Mozart's version of the work, which is less concerned with the social and political climate than the richness of human values that the work expresses. What is rather more important in Le nozze di Figaro then is how its characters are brought to life, and it's clear from the superb casting here and the fine singing, that this is the principal strength of Glyndebourne's new production.

You can set the opera in just about any period then and get away with it, even with its references to 'droit de seigneur'. There have always been sleazy bosses after all, and the 1960s is as good a setting then as any. The set design is impressive in its attention to detail. The locations are recreated with remarkable realism in the Moorish designs of the architecture, the tiles and the brickwork, and in the the lighting that casts warm orange-brown tones. The period however is not taken advantage of to any great extent here other than for purposes of style. If you had dressed the characters here in period costumes, the set - barring the appearance of a sports car during the overture - would have functioned just as well. Michael Grandage's stage directions don't really give the singers a lot of room to abandon themselves in the glorious wealth of warm, funny and touching sentiments that are expressed in the work, but the singing itself is strong across both the main and secondary roles.

Belle musique, bonne mise-en-scène, grands chanteurs, Isabelle Léonard parfaite. Un très bel opéra, on voudrait aller à Glyndenbourne pour voir un spectacle de cette qualité.

Great cast, great performance and Isabel Leonard steals the show as Cherubino. Difficult to decide whether I like this performance or the 2014 Met performance more. One of my favorite operas.
