Set designer Aurélie Maestre and costume designer Clémence Pernoud have moved the action of this Staatsoper Berlin production into the 80s, imbuing it with a retro ambience that adds to the natural comedy of the opera.
Throughout this adaptation of Le Nozze di Figaro, stage director Vincent Huguet has an eye for more than just entertainment: the extraordinary singing and acting talent of the soloists, including the stellar Elsa Dreisig, Nadine Sierra and Emily D’Angelo, also allow him the leeway for nuanced reflections on human behaviour. This already fantastic bill is topped off by the world-class Staatskapelle Berlin with the legendary Daniel Barenboim at its helm: a sheer delight for eyes, ears, and mind!
