Mozart: The Marriage of Figaro, opera / Anett Fritsch, sop; Ann Murray, mz; Luca Pisaroni, Adam Plachetka, bass-bar; Vienna Philharmonic & State Opera Choir, Dan Ettinger [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro is an unforgettable opera about love, desire and the primal force of uncontrollable passion. Concluding the Salzburg Festival's highly successful Mozart / Da Ponte cycle, director Sven-Eric Bechtolf sets this emotional tour de force in a stately English country house during the 1920s. The renowned Vienna Philharmonic ensures an exceptional evening of music from Mozart's birthplace. "Everything about the show exuded immediacy and naturalness: the intriguingly updated production by the director Sven-Eric Bechtolf; the winning performances of a compelling cast; and the supple, glowing playing that the conductor Dan Ettinger drew from the Vienna Philharmonic... ". (The New York Times) In the hands of Sven-Eric Bechtolf, this final production in the Salzburg Festival's Mozart / Da Ponte trilogy is a unique evening of inspiring opera. The stage design, spread over two levels showing up to five rooms at the same time, ensures fast-paced, parallel and multi-layered staging possibilities. Conductor Dan Ettinger's extraordinary musical sensitivity is truly noteworthy - "... the Vienna Philharmonic committed themselves with refined tonal brilliance and striking phrasing". (Der Standard). The soloists are a delight - "the sweet-voiced, appealing soprano Martina Janková", "the alluring soprano Annett Fritsch" and "the charismatic bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni" (The New York Times)
