NEWS WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO OR A CRAZY DAY

An intensive and overwhelming plot, where men and women are counterposed in the course of a “crazy day”, full of dramatic and comical events. A satire upon the privileged social classes of the time, but also an acute metaphor of the different phases of love, told with great mastery through the verses of Lorenzo Da Ponte and put to music amazingly by the genius of Mozart.
