Stephen Langridge, our new Artistic Director for Opera/Drama, opens the 2014/2015 season with Mozart's ever-fresh opera Le Nozze di Figaro. In the glittering cast, among others, is Dutch baritone Thomas Oliemans as the Count. Swedish soprano Malin Hartelius finally joins us as the Countess. Anna Grevelius (Cherubino) is also a very rare guest in Sweden after several years of spending her career in other countries such as the UK. Susanna, on the other hand, interpreted by Ida Falk Winland, will be a familiar face to the Gothenburg audience.
Most of the principal roles are taken by two teams, each with its own conductor. So there is every reason to see this production more than once and experience two very different interpretations of Mozart’s masterpiece.
