The release has received enthusiastic reviews across the board. “With Jürgen Flimm’s inventive and lively staging, an excellent cast and a rather traditional conducting by Dudamel, this is an excellent performance of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro,” writes pizzicato.

The jury of the International Classical Music Awards 2019 have selected the DVD and Blu-ray release of this production as “Best Video Performance”. Its star-studded cast was directed by Jürgen Flimm, who characterizes the opera as follows: “Figaro is by far the best work ever devised for the stage; it combines everything that moves the human heart and mind – forlorn hope, pleasantry, satire, profound significance, also much ado about nothing and vain amours.”

The International Classical Music Awards Ceremony will be held at KKL Lucerne on 10 May 2019.
