Cornell at the Opera: Le Nozze di Figaro

Cornell at the Opera: Le Nozze di Figaro
Saturday, March 26, 2016

A profoundly humane comedy, Le Nozze di Figaro is a remarkable marriage of Mozart’s music at the height of his genius and one of the best librettos ever set. In adapting a play that caused a scandal with its revolutionary take on 18th-century society, librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte focused less on the original topical references and more on the timeless issues embedded in the frothy drawing-room comedy. Come join us to explore this opera over brunch with Cornell’s Department of Music Professor Rebecca Harris-Warrick!
