STAATSOPER BERLIN – LE NOZZE DI FIGARO WITH ANNA PROHASKA
Figaro, the former “Barber of Seville,” has advanced to become Count Almaviva’s valet. His position at the castle allowed him to make the acquaintance of the Countess’ chambermaid, the lovely Susanna. They fell in love with one another and now want to marry. But the Count, who has also cast his favoring eye on Susanna, tries everything to stop the marriage. While the court vacations at a villa on the seashore, intrigues and counter-intrigues develop, in a veritable carnival, old debts are balanced and new alliances are forged, and events take surprising turns with chaos and anarchy as well as moments that secure order.
