Description

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote his comic opera Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) in 1786, in the style of the prevailing Opera Buffa of the late 18th century. However, in his genius, Mozart took the Opera Buffa style a step further, adding real 3-dimensional depth to the drama, not only in the characters as portrayed in the libretto but also to the characters as portrayed in his music. The result is a lively, amusing and beautiful masterpiece.

In his overture to the opera, Mozart sets down in a few short minutes a crisp, sparkling musical gem that not only sets the mood for the opera that follows, but has inspired symphonic music lovers for over 200 years.
