Description du produit
Le nozze di Figaro, Mozart s timeless opera buffa, is one of the greatest of all operatic masterpieces. It is based on Beaumarchais comedy Le Mariage de Figaroand tells the tale of the servant Figaro, who is about to marry the maid Susanna. Count Almaviva, keeping an eye on Susanna himself, tries to prevent this marriage with the help of Bartolo, the doctor, but is continually thwarted. This classic 1973 production by legendary director peter hallfeatures a cast of renowned opera singers lead by Kiri te Kanawaas the Countess, arguably her finest role and certainly the role that made her an international superstar. Knut skram s charming and charismatic take on the character of Figaro complements ileana cotrubas gentle Susanna, and also noteworthy is the outstanding performance by Frederica von stadeas Cherubino. It is doubtless thanks to the supreme conductorship of john pritchardthat excellent singers, who perform even in supporting roles, provide a well-rounded ensemble performance. Pritchard had been associated to the Glyndebourne theatre since 1947, and he gradually took over to continue Fritz Busch s initial work as a Choirmaster and Assistant.

The attractive cast, led by Rene Pape, as expected, is terrific. Pape is reasonably good looking, has a deep rich bass/baritone that actually produces endorphins when I hear him sing, and is an excellent actor. Dorothea Roeschmann's Susanna, Patricia Risley's Cherubino and Emily Magee as the Countess all get five stars for thrilling singing, great looks and perfect ensemble comic form. Roman Trekel is fine, but not as vocally strong as the rest of the cast.
Barenboim holds the score like a cork holds champagne: the music brims and bristles, always contained, always ready to burst. This is exactly right for this great opera. The sound is excellent. I read below that one listener seemed to have trouble with the middle channel. I had no trouble. From my system, the sound was rich and clear.
What can I say about the production? It's not ideal. Some of it seems a little spare and thrown together. There's a lot of unfortunate thumping around on a hollow stage. But it doesn't get in the way of the actors. In a 10 star system, it would lose a star. But this is a five star system, and the production works as a piece of theater where so many traditional productions exist merely to keep the audience occupied during soporiphic proceedings. I can recommend this DVD without reserve as one of the best examples of what can be done with the medium.
At any rate, this production is still worth hearing on the ArtHaus Musik DVD (100 017) now available through Naxos. Daniel Barenboim conducts the State Opera and Chorus of Berlin with a very good vocal cast: Rene Pape (Figaro), Dorothea Roschmann (Susanna), Emily Magee (Countess), Roman Trekel (Count), Patricia Risley (Cherubino), Rosemarie Lang (Marcellina), Kwangchul Youn (Bartolo), and the rest. The only visual problem is the rather unattractive Count, who looks a bit like a clean shaven Ming the Merciless rather than the charmer this character should be.
The scenery is sparse, the night sequences in Act IV barely lit at all. Barenboim gives a reading that calls for no complaints nor kudos. But the DVD format makes this a valuable educational tool for music teachers who wish to show this marvelous opera in parts, since the tracking cues (84 in all) are quite generous and intelligently programmed.
This production of "The Marriage of Figaro" is simply charming.
I was enchanted by the entire four acts and impressed by the quality of the DVD as well. The singers were strong and emotional. They brought their own take and nuances to these characters and portrayed them beautifully. The orchestra was magnificent and did justice to the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
The story is romantic, witty, complex and spellbinding:
Figaro, a servant of Count Almaviva, and Susanna, personal maid to the Countess Rosina, are planning their wedding, but...there are some problems to be worked out first. The Count lusts after Susanna(as well as others) and makes it clear that he intends to invoke "jus primae noctis"(the right of the first night) before giving his consent to the marriage. Meanwhile Marcellina, another servant in the household, is holding Figaro to his once promised marriage to her. The Countess is depressed over the infidelities of her husband and conspires with Susanna to prove his unfaithfulness. And always in the middle of all this scheming between the sexes is the irrepressible Cherubino, the Count's young page, who loves all the women and can hardly contain himself around them. It is a battle of the sexes set to wonderful music.
The performance at the Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin includes this outstanding cast: Rene Pape as Figaro, Dorothea Roschmann as Susanna, Emily Magee as The Countess, Roman Trekel as The Count and in a performance that will steal your heart, Patricia Risley as Cherubino. The music is conducted to perfection by Daniel Barenboim, with the State Opera Choir Berlin.
The DVD is an excellent quality. It's the next best thing to actually being there. It looks great and the music and voices fill the room in Dolby Digital 5.1. The production is in Italian, and may be viewed with or without English or Japanese subtitles.The menu may also be viewed in those langauges as well. There are some production notes as well. It is nicely packaged and includes a booklet/program. It has the scenes listed and there are summaries of each act in several languages, including English. There are also some notes on Mozart as well.
Even with the placement of some modern day props(a marker, "Vogue" magazine, a ball point pen), which I personally thought was a touch of whimsy, I was absolutely caught up in the time and place, the music and the story .I felt the same enthusiasm the audience did as they cheered this performance. All that was missing was the very expensive tickets and a little ambiance. Highly recommended for lovers of Mozart and Opera.
