Power, privilege and forgiveness.
A new production from an exciting creative team featuring international and Kiwi singers. This production explores power structures of class and gender and the redemptive power of forgiveness. Perfect for family, first timers and well versed opera lovers.
Comedy has always challenged the power structures of class and gender. The Marriage of Figaro did so from its first operatic performance three years before the French Revolution in 1786 and Beaumarchais’s once banned play, written a few years earlier. In this new production, director Lindy Hume and her creative team cleverly explore the potent politics of this landmark opera and what it means in a modern context. Set over a day of madness and trickery, with non-stop action underscored by the glorious music that has made this opera an enduring favourite for more than two centuries.
Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte
Director Lindy Hume
Assistant director Eleanor Bishop
Designer Tracy Grant Lord Lighting designer by Matthew Marshall
Conductor Zoe Zeniodi.
The opera will feature the Freemasons New Zealand Opera Chorus along with Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.
New Zealand Opera is delighted to confirm that The Marriage of Figaro season has been rescheduled to June 2021. Women lead the charge against power, privilege and patriarchy in Mozart and Da Ponte’s chaotic and hopeful masterpiece. In this new production, director Lindy Hume and her creative team cleverly explore the potent politics of class and gender in this landmark opera and what it means in a modern context, featuring a stellar cast of world-class singers. This performance will make you think more deeply about humanity, love, and optimism.
