In the land of Descartes, the words «Opéra de Paris» more readily designate a concept than an actual lyrical théâtre! Called «The Royal Academy of Music and Dance» under the reign of Monsieur de Lully and «The Impérial Academy» according to différent jolitical events, the institution was rebaptized a number of time s before settling into the "alais Garnier in 1875. This sumptuous édifice, with every last détail (including the door 'cnobs...) designed by Charles Garnier, brings together the most eclectic architectural éléments. When Napoléon III worried about the buildings differing styles, Garnier reassured him by explaining "hat the design was at the forefront of a new style, called «Napoléon III.» And legend has it that 'he building was constructed on a little lake, in which the Opera's administration bred fish...

 

Some call to mmd the era of Felia Litvmne (1863-1936) and her vast repertoire, including Tannhâuser, La Juive and Lully’AlCESTE. Others remember the casts billed by Jacques Rouché between 1915 and 1945, an era during which Georges Thill sung both Massenet and Wagner in French. In 1939, the Palais Garnier's Grand Opéra and the Salle Favart's Cornic Opéra were united under the manage­ment of a common admînistrator, the «Réunion des Théâtres Lyriques Nationaux.» And 1964 marks the year during which the old ceiling of the Palais Garnier was covered with a colorfiil fresco by Chagall.

 

More recently, opéra lovers recall the magnificent Liebermann years, during which, in 1973, Rolf Liebermann, then the Opera's administrator, called upon the know-how of a musical advisor named Georg Solti! In 1989, the very modem Bastille Opéra was opened and the Salle Favart became indépendant once again. The Garnier Théâtre was then reserved for dance, and. together with the Bastille, became part of the «Association des Théâtres de l'Opéra de Paris,» rebap­tized «Opéra National de Paris» in 1994. In the midst of thèse numerous changes, the Palais Garnier has recently under-gone thorough restoration, and since March 1996, lyrical productions are once again programmed on its stage. To opéra lovers' great satis­faction, the famous théâtre has thus revived its past splendeur and a programming worthy of its glorious history.

Synopsis

Le Nozze di Figaro

"Le nozze di Figaro", or The Marriage of Figaro is one of the finest operas ever written. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote this comic opera in 1786 and it has been produced and enjoyed around the world ever since. This most performed opera worldwide, about the wedding day of Figaro and Susanna, is a funny and intriguing romp. 

This is one of the best known Mozart’s operas. Da Ponte’s libretto was based on Beaumarchais’s The Marriage of Figaro, however, the playful atmosphere is preserved whilst the satirical elements and the criticism toward society are considerably reduced and toned down due to censorship. Nevertheless, the opera still shows the aristocracy as strongly clinging to their privileges and the third state as struggling to survive. Plus, this is the beginning of the collaboration between Mozart and Da Ponte.

HISTORY
The action takes place in the palace of Count Almaviva in Seville, Spain. The time is the early 19th century. 

The plot: the Countess of Almaviva is married to the raunchy, ageing, womanising Count. The count is chasing Susanna, a servant girl, about to be married to Figaro, the Count's valet. The Countess, Susanna and Figaro plan to shame the Count and expose his scheming ways. In response, the Count arranges for Figaro to legally marry an old woman who turns out to be his mother. 
Because of clever schemes the love of the Count and Countesses is resored. 

Act 1 
In the Count's home, Figaro and Susanna, are preparing for their wedding when Figaro learns that the Count desires Susanna. Afraid that the Count will reinstate a law that would allow the Count to bed a servant girl before her new husband. Figaro realises a plan needs to be devised. 

Act 2 
In the Countess's chambers, the Countess is questioning Susanna about the Count's fidelity. Susanna explains that the Count has offered her bribes in return for her affections. Susanna convinces the Countess that she is not interested in the Count. The Countess crafts a plan to teach her husband a lesson.

Act 3
The plot unfolds in the wedding hall. Susanna tells the Count to meet her at night, in garden. The Count suspects deception and tells Figaro that he must marry old Marcellina instead of Susanna. Figaro argues that he must have his parents blessing. Figaro does not know his parents so court documents are searched. There are celebrations when Figaro is reunited with his parents.

Act 4
The Count and Susanne are to meet in the garden after the wedding. But, the Countess, dressed as Susanna meets him instead. Elsewhere, Susanna sings of her love for Figaro, though Figaro believes she is singing about the Count, not him . In the garden, "Susanna" and the Count meet. The two embrace passionately and he gifts her a ring. The Count discovers his wife, dressed as Susanne. The Countess scolds her husband for his foolishness, he begs for forgiveness and all ends well.
