Description
Based on a 1967 production, this German-language Figaro was filmed under studio conditions on the Hamburg State Opera stage.

"We find in the pit one of the great, though underrated German Kapellmeisters of the period, and a great Mozartean: Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt. He was never one to make a fuss about his personality but he knew how to mould phrases. He was responsive to the singers and had an unerring feeling for the right tempo.... Tom Krause and Edith Mathis [are] both great Mozart singers and known in their respective roles from commercial recordings.... Both are superb here. Krause [the Count] with his nut-brown voice and ardent singing and acting, Edith Mathis silvery of tone and the most loveable of Susannas.... Blankenburg is a charming, straightforward Figaro who can darken the voice further when he vents his anger. Arlene Saunders is so noble and human and one imagines the sprightly Rosina of pre-Countess days. As Marcellina and Bartolo we hear two splendid character singers and actors: Maria von Ilosvay sings better than most Marcellinas and is perfect in the role. The jovial Nol Mangin is a Bartolo of one's dreams with black voice and not overplaying his hand on the comic side.... The sets take us unashamedly to Mozart's time."MusicWeb International
