      De klasskonflikter och revolutionära tankar som genomsyrar verket stannar kvar i Andalusien, men har i Langridges tolkning flyttats till Franco-tiden. I George Souglides snillrika scenografi får vi se alla sidohandlingar gestaltas i öppen dager. I den guldkantade rollbesättningen märks bland andra den holländske barytonen Thomas Oliemans som Greven. Han fick nyligen det prestigefyllda priset Prix d’Amis 2013 för sin tolkning av Papageno. Som Grevinnan kommer äntligen den svenska sopranen Malin Hartelius till oss. Hon har haft så gott som hela sin karriär förlagd utomlands på de större operascenerna. Även Anna Grevelius (Cherubin) är en mycket sällsynt gäst på svenska breddgrader efter flera års karriär i bland annat England. Susanna blir däremot ett välbekant ansikte för Göteborgspubliken i Ida Falk Winland. De flesta huvudroller görs av två lag som dessutom har varsin dirigent. Så det finns all anledning att uppleva denna produktion mer än en gång och göra egna jämförelser och iakttagelser. Mer info: http://opera.se/forestallningar/figaros-brollop-2014-2015/ --- The class conflicts and revolutionary thoughts that permeate this work remain in Andalusia, but in Stephen Langridge's interpretation, they have been transposed to the Franco era. George Souglides' brilliant set design allows us to see all of the side-plots interpreted, right out in the open. In the glittering cast, among others, is Dutch baritone Thomas Oliemans as the Count. He was recently awarded the prestigious Prix d’Amis 2013 for his interpretation of Papageno. Swedish soprano Malin Hartelius finally joins us as the Countess. She has spent virtually her whole career abroad on the stages of the major opera houses. Anna Grevelius (Cherubino) is also a very rare guest in Sweden after several years of spending her career in other countries such as the UK. Susanna, on the other hand, interpreted by Ida Falk Winland, will be a familiar face to the Gothenburg audience. Most of the principal roles are taken by two teams, each with its own conductor. So there is every reason to see this production more than once and experience two very different interpretations of Mozart’s masterpiece.

        Mozart's story of love, deception, seduction and subversion is here set at the end of the swinging 60s in Franco's Spain complete with flares, kaftans and a brief cameo from a 'vintage' (actually electric) red Austin Healy. Michael Grandage's production was acclaimed when first put on at the 2012 Glyndebourne Festival: ‘This is a Figaro of rare grace, naturalness and charm’, said The Daily Telegraph, and for The Sunday Times it was a production that ‘affirms Mozart’s most beloved masterpiece as both of its time and perennially modern, Grandage oiling the comic mechanisms of Lorenzo Da Ponte’s libretto with a master technician’s hands.’ Le nozze di Figaro (recorded live in 2012) will be in cinemas and online from 8 July 2013.
