One of the finest Figaros I've seen
24 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

Le Nozze Di Figaro has always been one of my favourite operas, and while I have more of a fondness for the 1973, 1993, 1994 and 1998 productions and also the Jean Pierre Ponnelle film, this is still one of the better Figaros I've seen. It is handsome in look, with sumptuous costumes and well-constructed sets. The music is truly outstanding, the orchestra are both sensitive accompanists and stylish players, never letting the recitatives lose their character and storytelling. Bernard Haitink proves himself to be a good Mozartian, crisp and efficient while just lacking the fit-to-burst energy of Barenboim and Levine and not being too romantic like Solti or plodding(sometimes) like Bohm.

The production is always charming, sometimes moving(like at the end with one of Mozart's most gorgeous pieces of music, only Soave Sia Il Vento from Cosi Fan Tutte is more so) and never vulgar. The performances are wonderful, with the only disappointment being the matronly and tremulous Countess of L.Kazarnovskaya. On the other hand, Thomas Allen is arrogance personified as the Count, Ferruccio Furlanetto(one of the best Leporellos and an excellent Guglielmo) is the definition of the appealing everyman character of Figaro, Dawn Upshaw is a charming Susanna and Suzanne Mentzer a sexy and believable Cherubino..

All in all, truly excellent. 9/10 Bethany Cox
