One of the most famous operas in the repertory, Le nozze di Figaro is one of a trio of collaborations between Mozart and Lorenzo da Ponte.David McVicar's acclaimed production sets the action in a French chateau in 1830 on the eve of revolution, amplifying the opera's undercurrents of class tension. The entire household is drawn into the notoriously complex plot, which covers all shades of human emotion: spirited playfulness, such as when Figaro sends Cherubino off to war in 'Non so pi? cosa son', is combined with heartfelt despair, such as the Countess's grief at her husband's infidelity. But affection and fidelity prevail in this most warm-hearted of operas: the Count's plea for forgiveness in the final act, 'Condessa, perdono', is one of the most moving arias in opera.www.roh.org.ukwww.twitter.com/royaloperahousewww.facebook.com/royaloperahouse
