Le nozze di Figaro

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Glyndebourne
Directed by Michael Grandage

The first opera to be shown at Glyndebourne in 1934, this audience favourite is shown here in Michael Grandage's new staging.

We’re transported back to the Swinging Sixties to follow the mischievous antics of masters and their servants, brought to life by Christopher Oram’s delightful Moorish Palace.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
