Notes & Reviews:

"Update is the imperfect noun we use. Christoph Marthaler's production has transposed 18th-century upstairs downstairs to bridal retail in 2001. We get Mozart's music and Da Ponte's words, subject to Mr. Marthaler's cheerful interventions and interpolations, but everyone onstage dresses like you and me. Christine Schafer's Cherubino is the most successful transplant. With her T-shirt, hip-hop jeans, mop wig and chewing gum, Ms. Schafer sings sweetly and argues well for the lovesick page as ghastly 21st-century teenager. Lorenzo Regazzo is a natural born Figaro..." -New York Times
