Under conductor Alevtina Ioffe whose energetic and rather balletic direction keeps the orchestra tightly in check, the chorus and soloists are impressive.”
Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte
Be whisked away by The Marriage of Figaro’s madcap fun! From toe-tapping overture to uplifting finale, Mozart’s beloved comedy based on the radical Beaumarchais play is alive with rich commentary on social class and gender roles. Master and servant go head-to-head, while their crafty wives outsmart the men in one chaotic, hilarious day that ends in happiness and love. The first woman to lead Russia’s historic Mikhailovsky Theatre, Maestro Alevtina Ioffe, makes her company debut conducting this traditional production. Michael Sumuel, whose vocals are “smooth and ingratiating” (Daily Camera) returns as Figaro.
