PRESENTATION

Le nozze di Figaro

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

From 25 October to 31 December 2021 on GNO TV

Ticket: 10€

As part of the tribute to the 2021 bicentennial of the Greek Revolution

With the Orchestra and Chorus of the GNO

This production, part of a tribute to the 2021 bicentennial of the Greek Revolution, is made possible by a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) [ www.SNF.org ].

A big opera production will receive its exclusive premiere on GNO TV in October. Le nozze di Figaro under the baton of the internationally acclaimed conductor Vassilis Christopoulos and directed by the GNO Alternative Stage Artistic Director Alexandros Efklidis, which was filmed last spring without a live audience, now comes to your screens through nationalopera.gr/GNOTV, from 25 October to 31 December 2021.

In Alexandros Eflklidis' imaginative staging, the fine shades of Mozart's musico-theatrical genius are brought out through a cinematic set portraying a universe of retro paradoxicality. Mozart's characters are turned into the cogs of a strange world underlining the eternal struggle for improvement of one's social position and dignity. The filmlike set is highlighted by the shooting, which focuses on the details of the performances, while also emphasising the productions' CinemaScope aspect.

In the leading roles we find younger but also internationally acclaimed soloists of the GNO, such as Dimitri Platanias, Cellia Costea, Dionysios Sourbis, Afroditi Patoulidou, Miranda Makrynioti, etc.

Le nozze di Figaro was first performed in Vienna in 1876, three years prior to the French Revolution. Lorenzo da Ponte's libretto, which is based on Beaumarchais' five-act comedy La folle journée ou Le Mariage de Figaro ( The Mad Day or The Marriage of Figaro), echoes the turbulent era and the rivalry between two different social classes: that of the Count and Countess Almaviva, and the one of their servants, Susanna and Figaro. More specifically, the story of Le nozze is about Figaro and Susanna's effort to get married despite the obstacles put in their way by the Count.
