It was 1786, and 1 May was the date of the debut at the Burgtheater in Vienna of the first of three masterpieces by Mozart in collaboration with Lorenzo Da Ponte: Le nozze di Figaro. The story, based on the well-known Le mariage de Figaro by Beaumarchais in 1778, was particularly suited to Mozart in terms of the play of situations and characters, which was ideal for an unprecedented psychological examination set to music. The score is characterised from the very beginning by a notable vitality: the overture draws us into the crazed day of Figaro and his companions, and from that moment the music acquiring such force as to become action itself, through plots twists, disguises, ploys, un-kept promises, unexpected revelations and tormented love, but also nostalgia and anguish, right up to the conciliating end of the fourth act, which returns harmony and order to things. This new staging of Le Nozze di Figaro is directed by Sonia Bergamasco, as part of an all-female reading of the Mozart trilogy which will see the involvement of other artists in the upcoming seasons.
