Never has there been quite as much laughter at the Royal Opera House Muscat than during the production of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro by the Vienna State Opera.
The three sold out performances last week delighted the audiences, thanks to a wonderful combination of fantastic music, beautiful sets and, above all, a stellar cast that brought the chaos, conspiracies and comedy of the opera to the stage.
Since its premier in 1786, The Marriage of Figaro, which continues the story from Rossini's The Barber of Seville, has been one of Mozart's most beloved operas. It tells the story of Figaro's wedding day and the many antics that happen between jealous fiancés, wives and maids, counts who overstep their boundaries with their servants, vengeful former suitors, lovesick pages, and bumbling gardeners. After a day filled with confusion and hilarity, all is well by nightfall, when Figaro is finally reunited with Susanna.
Italian mezzo-soprano Serena Malfi was simply charming in the role of Cherubino, Also memorable was Dorothea Roschmann as Countess Almaviva.
