Mozart's great comic opera is a tale of intrigue, misunderstanding and forgiveness. Director Lydia Steier teases out the touching melancholy of the characters with the mixture of opulence and black humour.

Displayed like couples from a faded era, the opera's staff stands in front of the black stage curtain in historical rococo costumes. Have those who love each other found each other here, or only those who belong together or should be together because of class or financial circumstances? Director Lydia Steier puts Susanna, Figaro's bride, centre stage.
