Le Nozze di Figaro, Mozart's timeless opera buffa, is one of the greatest of all operatic masterpieces. It is based on Beaumarchais' comedy Le Mariage de Figaro and tells the tale of the servant Figaro, who is about to marry the maid Susanna. Count Almaviva, keeping an eye on Susanna himself, tries to prevent this marriage with the help of Bortolo, the doctor, but is continually thwarted.

This classic 1973 production by legendary director Peter Hall features a host of renowned opera singers lead by Kiri Te Kanawa as the Countess, arguably her finest role and certainly the role that made her an international superstar. Knut Skram's charming and charismatic take on the character of Figaro complements Cotruba's gentle Susanna, and also noteworthy is the outstanding Frederica von Stade, celebrated for her performance as Cherubino.

Sir Peter Hall was formerly Director of the National Theatre as well as Artistic Director of Glyndebourne Opera from 1989 to 1990. He has a close association with the music of Mozart and has recently directed a highly successful revival of Peter Shaffer's Amadeus for the West End and Broadway.

"... in her heyday Kiri Te Kanawa possessed one of the most remarkable voices in the world, a soprano of such allure and opulence that you simply surrendered to its beauty ..."
