Description
Lorenzo da Ponte's libretto and Mozart's music transformed the stock characters of the opera buffa tradition into authentic human beings, making The Marriage of Figaro one of the most sophisticated and beloved operas of all time. (Some consider it, with good reason, the perfect opera.) The sparkling cast of this 2006 Paris Opera production includes Christiane Oelze as the Countess and Heidi Grant Murphy as Susanna.

"Update is the imperfect noun we use. Christoph Marthaler's production has transposed 18th-century upstairs–downstairs to bridal retail in 2001. We get Mozart's music and Da Ponte's words, subject to Mr. Marthaler's cheerful interventions and interpolations, but everyone onstage dresses like you and me. Christine Schäfer's Cherubino is the most successful transplant. With her T-shirt, hip-hop jeans, mop wig and chewing gum, Ms. Schäfer sings sweetly and argues well for the lovesick page as ghastly 21st-century teenager. Lorenzo Regazzo is a natural born Figaro."—NY Times
