Although it has been over two hundred years since the premiere of The Marriage of Figaro which took place on 1 May 1786 in Vienna’s Burgtheater, the opera's attractiveness has not faded away. It is the masterpiece of the opera theatre. The great libretto was written by Lorenzo da Ponte and based on a brilliant comedy by Pierre Beaumarchais which turned out to have prophetic inclinations over the coming French Revolution. The music was wonderfully light and sensuous. It mirrored the tensions of action, reflected the atmosphere and was full of humour. The libretto and the music make a unique whole. "The Marriage of Figaro" is an exciting comedy, full of unexpected turns of events. It is a story of erotic intrigue in which characters are perfectly portrayed. What is more, it was the first opera which included a critique of social relations.

The creators of our performance have remained faithful to the Mozart’s masterpiece. They accentuate its timeless merits, including in particular the truthfulness of characters, emotions and relations between the characters. At the same time, they do not avoid social issues addressed in the story of marriage between Figaro and Susanna.
