About this event

Event Cinema gives you unique access to the highest quality performances that you could only otherwise see live at the venues themselves. These events are very often only available once in a blue moon and for short runs. They cannot be found through your usual online streaming services or via your usual tv channels which, we think, makes them extra special!

Le nozze di Figaro (PG)

This 2012 Glyndebourne Festival production is Michael Grandage’s take on this 18th century comedy of manners moved forward into the 1960s with a cast of young artists partnered with some seasoned veterans.

When a womanising aristocrat tries to seduce his valet’s pretty young fiancée, his wife and servants conspire to teach him a lesson in fidelity he’ll never forget. Plots are hatched, promises made (and broken) and disguises donned, as Mozart’s ‘mad day’ unfolds.

Doors 7pm for 7.30pm. Running time 2hrs 50mins plus 15 minute interval.

Licensed Bar accepts debit/credit cards.

ALSO INCLUDED IN YOUR TICKET PRICE:

‘Revolutionary opera: Beaumarchais, Figaro and a discomfited count’, a talk by Jennie Turnbull.

To make the most of the screening of this superb performance, why not join Jennie for a 30 min talk setting the opera in context?

Mozart's opera is an adaptation of Beaumarchais's 1778 comedy, Le Marriage de Figaro or La Folle Journee (The Mad Day). Written just a decade or so before the French Revolution, the play's irreverent treatment of the nobility resulted in it being banned by Louis XVI and described by Bonaparte as "the revolution already put into action". The play was also banned in Vienna by Emperor Joseph II, but Mozart was able to persuade him to allow an operatic version which was premiered in 1786. Learn all about the intrigue and impact of one of the finest operas of all.

Jennie's talk will start at 6.30pm sharp with doors open for the talk at 6.00pm.
