Happy Birthday, Wolfie!

The Marriage of Figaro Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Staatsoper Hannover

In celebration of Mozart's 266th birthday I'm watching this live stream from Staatsoper Hannover of the first night of Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro which has a twist.

Director, Lydia Steier - "We start the piece with the finale – with everyone standing around in pairs and happy and harmonious and it all worked out. And then when we see that again at the end of the piece, then we see how hollow and real almost hopelessly sad this ending is that people came together against their will."

Conducted by Giulio Cilona. the production stars Germán Olvera as Count Almviva, Kiandra Howarth as Countess Almviva, Sarah Brady as Susanna, Richard Walshe as Figaro and Nina van Essen as Cherubino.
