The Marriage of Figaro 1963

Le Nozze di Figaro 1963

A recording from the Salzburg Festival, Salzburg 1963

Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro has always been the most-performed opera at the Salzburg Festival. Mozart's musical comedy was first programmed in 1922 - and until 2009, it saw no less than 240 performances. In 1963, Figaro was sung by the Welsh bass-baritone Geraint Evans, who had a gorgeous voice and plenty of Mozart experience and was also an actor who kept his role in perfect balance, despite its many facets. This recording of Le Nozze di Figaro documents a performance that demonstrated like few others why the opera bears the subtitle «The Day of Madness».
