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. The big opera for 2020. 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, Directed by Lindy Hume, Assistant Director Eleanor Bishop, Designed by Tracy Grant Lord, Lighting designed by Matthew Marshall, Conductor Zoe Zeniodi.
The opera will feature the Freemasons New Zealand Opera Chorus along with Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.
