The Marriage of Figaro

San Francisco Opera

San Francisco Opera The Marriage of Figaro

A carnally minded count, his neglected wife, their wily servants and a young page who falls in love with every woman he sees: Mozart’s greatest comedy contains a cornucopia of wonderfully flawed and human characters who will amuse and delight you. Soprano Danielle de Niese “has a voice made for Mozart: bright, beautiful, agile and creamy” (National Public Radio). The “charismatic, vocally robust young Italian bass Luca Pisaroni…is an impulsive and charming Figaro” (The New York Times).

Music Director Nicola Luisotti conducts this perfectly cast production with glamorous soprano Ellie Dehn as the Countess and former Adler Fellow Lucas Meachem as her philandering husband.

Soprano Danielle de Niese — eye-buggingly beautiful, extremely intelligent, and madly in love with everything she does — is a joy to interview. Here she talks about her steamy iPod encounters, S.F. Opera debut in Figaro, work with Nicola Luisotti, and recent vocal developments.
