MARRIAGE OF FIGARO (Nozze di Figaro) - Opera by Mozart
Nozze di Figaro (Marriage of Figaro) - Opera by Mozart.

The Marriage of Figaro (Le Nozze di Figaro) is a comic opera composed in 1786 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, with an Italian libretto written by Lorenzo Da Ponte. It tells how the servants Figaro and Susanna succeed in getting married, foiling the efforts of their philandering employer Count Almaviva to seduce Susanna and teaching him a lesson in fidelity.

The opera is a cornerstone of the repertoire and appears consistently among the top ten of best operas ever written.

This world premiere production will feature the Sephardic origins of Lorenzo Da Ponte and will be directed and adapted by David Serero.

Following his world premiere adaptation of Don Giovanni in 2018, David Serero returns with the Marriage of Figaro in a new adaptation! The musical numbers will be performed in Italian while the recitative will be done as dialogues in English, enabling Mr Serero to create funny theatrical moments and to allow the audience to follow the story.

This opera is an audience's favorite, known of its festive elements, written by Mozart and Lorenzo Da Ponte.

David Serero is widely known for his signature of theatrical adaptations (which he adapts, directs and produces) introducing classics to a broader audience with unique adaptations, by adding what he calls his "touch of champagne". His recent adaptations are "Cyrano de Bergerac" featuring Jazz standards, "Othello" in a Moroccan style, "The Merchant of Venice" in a Sephardi style, and many more. David has also brought operas in a more accessible format (Don Giovanni, Nabucco, Nozze di Figaro) with unique adaptations, as well as bringing back to life important works of literature such as the Jew of Malta, The Yiddish King Lear, and Napoleon by Stanley Kubrick.

Starring David Serero (Figaro), Hannah Madeleine Goodman (Susanna), Charles Gray (Count), Jennifer Zamorano (Countess), and Allegra Durante (Cherubino).
