Program Notes

Mozart's famous opera The Marriage of Figaro, composed in 1786, was the first of his greatest series of operas. The combination of DaPonte's witty text and Mozart's sparkling music was irresistible, and the opera was an immediate success. The adventures of the resourceful barber (who appears again in Rossini's Barber of Seville) are illustrated by some of the most delightful music Mozart ever wrote. The overture, which is in one tempo throughout, is a pure gem of spontaneous melody and skillful design.
