Description

Pre-opera talk at 7pm

Teatru Manoel presents a brand new production of Mozart's comic opera.

Europe, today, or in the near future. The continent is tottering on the brink of societal collapse. Popular movements of all stripes are rallying people to their cause. The Count, a CEO, politician, diplomat and representative of the establishment, tries to ignore the massive forces of change heading towards his crumbling old palazzo (which is updated with all the mod cons), little realising that his household is already being radicalised. What we watch is how the revolutionary co-operation of the women across class boundaries leads to the triumph of love, acceptance and a tentative harmony as a new European order is built. Cherubino, a teenager caught up in the heady political madness, becomes an emblem of the new citizenry as he endlessly cross-dresses in pursuit of new and more fluid identities. Barriers are broken, structures soften and the inflexible bends.
 
This production of Le Nozze di Figaro will bring to life all of the charm, humanity and wit of Mozart and da Ponte’s classic while restoring the satirical bite and political edge of Beaumarchais’ original play, in a contemporary context.
