The opera Le Nozze di Figaro was staged in The Estates Theatre already in 1787 and conducted by Mozart himself.
Italian original version with Czech and English surtitles
The opera Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) is inextricably linked with Prague. Although the opera’s world premiere took place in Vienna, it was only in Prague that it experienced its first real triumph, owing to which the impresario Bondini commissioned from Mozart an opera specially intended for Prague – Don Giovanni.
In this opera about jealousy and love, Mozart masterfully portrays a variety of characters major and minor, headed by the servant and joker Figaro, who together with his fiancee, chamber-maid Susanna, is able to stand up to the arbitrariness and incorrigible woman-chasing of Count Almaviva.
There are few operas with such opulent and intricate action as Le nozze di Figaro. Its nature is well expressed by the secondary title of Beaumarchais’s play: “The Day of Madness”.
