Icelandic Opera returns to the stage of the Icelandic National Theatre with Mozart´s Le nozze di Figaro.The opera is about love, marriage and entitlement. Figaro and Susanna must survive their wedding day and overcome huge obstacles – mistrust, jealousy, betrayal, lawsuits, massive debts and a lecherous lord. Meanwhile, as one marriage begins, another seems to be collapsing. The abandoned and furious Countess is hoping to save her marriage to the philandering Count, a nobleman intent on exercising decadent and ancient rights to which he mistakenly believes himself fully entitled. In a sparkling new baroque 'n' roll production full of aristocratic absurdity, farce and comedy, the eighteenth century has never looked so colourful, vibrant and fun.
