Do not miss famous opera Le nozze di Figaro in the Estates Theatre, where it was in 1787 conducted by Mozart himself!


The opera is staged in Italian original version and Czech and English surtitles are used in the performance.
 

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 gamut of characters major and minor, headed by the servant and joker Figaro, who together with his fiancee, the 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 aptly rendered by the secondary title of Beaumarchais’s eponymous play: “The Day of Madness”.
