Mozart: Marriage of Figaro

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
Conductor: Simon Rattle
Production: Peter Hall

Countess Almaviva - Gunnel Bohman

In 1990 the Glyndebourne Festival had a little revolution in its sacred halls: Simon Rattle conducted a production of Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro. What was so special about this production is the fact that for the first time in the festival's history an orchestra of period instruments was used. To up the ante, there was also a radical departure of its 56 year old established performance practice: Mozart was to be performed with full use of appoggiaturas and ornamentation.
