Philippe Jordan | Giorgio Strehler | Opéra national de Paris

Mozart : Le nozze di Figaro

Filmed at the Paris Opera with a cast including the great Mozart figures of our time, Giorgio Strehler’s legendary production is now available for the first time on DVD and Blu-ray.         

Any reprise of the Strehler Nozze di Figaro has to be a major event. And in 2010, thirty-seven years after its première, the work met with a fresh triumph at the Opéra Bastille, featuring a new generation of performers: Ludovic Tézier (Count Almaviva), Barbara Frittoli (Countess Almaviva), Ekaterina Siurina (Susanna), Luca Pisaroni (Figaro) et Karine Deshayes (Cherubino).

As musical director Philippe Jordan reveals the Orchestra and Chorus of the Opéra National de Paris at the height of their powers.

And as a bonus: an interview with Humbert Camerlo, who worked for many years with Giorgio Strehler and was the stage director for this reprise.

‘’La dirección musical de Philippe Jordan combina gusto por la belleza y entusiasmo festivo con la gravedad sutil que transmite el director de escena, pues ya sabemos que el teatro es tan alegre, tan triste, como la vida” – REVISTA RITMO
