This new Marriage of Figaro is an opportunity for Jérémie Rhorer to return to the composer and for the American filmmaker James Gray to take his first steps in opera

One never tires of playing or hearing The Marriage of Figaro, so full is the genius of Mozart and Da Ponte on every page. The Marriage or five characters divided between desire and duty, even if Susanna seems to be the least affected by the dilemma that characterizes Figaro as the Count, the Countess as Cherubino. The whole work is thus carried by this painting of love and social conventions. And always, and perhaps even more so here, the virtuosity of Mozart’s singing, whether in recitatives, arias or ensembles. Mozart is unique as well as universal and a masterly lesson in recitare, the Italian term for “acting”.

After Idomeneo, La Clémence de Titus, Cosi fan tutte and Don Giovanni, this is the fifth Mozart opus that Jérémie Rhorer will conduct on avenue Montaigne at the head of his ensemble Le Cercle de L’Harmonie with a cast that we can only savor in advance: Anna Aglatova and Robert Gleadow’s couple Susanna – Figaro, Stéphane Degout’s aristocratic count and Vannina Santoni’s first Parisian countess, without forgetting Eléonore Pancrazi’s mischievous Cherubino and Jennifer Larmore’s luxurious Marceline. From his Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1994 for his first film, Little Odessa, to his recent Ad Astra, American filmmaker James Gray is one of those who have marked American cinema over the last twenty years with his ambitious and very personal writing and direction of actors. His filmography (The Yard, Two Lovers, The Night is Ours, The Immigrant…) is marked by a novelistic style and a pronounced taste for frescoes and chronicles with a social and family focus. A great lover of lyrical literature, this Wedding will be his first steps as an opera director.
