I saw The Marriage of Figaro for the first time last night at the Seattle Opera. While I haven’t been the most ardent supporter of opera, I am a big fan of Mozart. I have to say this was by far my favorite opera in the handful or so that I’ve seen.
What a great story. Two common folk in love, two nobles out of love. One young man in love with everything and everyone. It’s all about love and very Shakespearean. I once had a recording on CD, but I’ll need to find it again.
This was my favorite aria of the opera. Cherubino proclaiming his love.
