FROM 27 Apr
The Marriage of Figaro (ROH23)
Performance David McVicar’s glorious production of Mozart’s ever-popular comic opera conducted by Antonio Pappano with a truly international cast.
There are echoes of Schnitzler’s La Ronde in this edgy work from a director who specialises in immersive storytelling.
The restless point-of-view camerawork adds to the feeling of subversion and the episodic structure makes demands of the viewer, but the characters and their conflicts ensure that this well-acted and intense psychodrama is well worth our engagement.
