Irish National Opera Presents: The Marriage of Figaro

Wednesday, 18 April 2018, 7.30pm

 MOZART // APRIL 2018 // DUBLIN, WEXFORD
The Marriage of Figaro

“There’s a heart in every beat, and vice versa, and never does Mozart give up on humanity”
- FREDERICA VON STADE, MEZZO SOPRANO

Sung in Italian with English surtitles

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH IRISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA

Sharp comedy. Sublime music. A story of social and sexual power in the sultry setting of a wealthy Spanish household.

Featuring Jonathan Lemalu as Figaro and Tara Erraught as Susanna.

“It’s perfectly lovely; breaking from one beauty into another, & so romantic as well as witty – the perfection of music, & vindication of opera”. Virginia Woolf, Diary, 1917

“ There are no winners or losers in Figaro, only slightly bewildered people who cope with the game of life… I turn the pages of any Mozart score and marvel. This genius defined the human condition in his music and we bravely try to squeeze his universe into the theatre”. Jean-Pierre Ponnelle, Opera Director

“A display of pinpoint perfection… if you haven’t heard Erraught… you’re missing out on an essential experience of 21st-century Ireland”
- THE IRISH TIMES

“From the moment she walks on to a stage Suzanne Murphy holds Dublin audiences in a strange thrall…Ms Murphy is more than just a singer, she is an extraordinarily gifted singing actress”
- THE IRISH TIMES
