The crazy day is more crazy than ever.

Figaro and Susanna‘s getting married. Both are servants to a Count who recently was modern enough to abolish an old custom droit du seigneurwhich gave the right to a night with the bride when his subordinates married. A decision Count now regret! Not least when his wife suddenly has a young lover who steals her power. The maid Marcellina love Figaro in secret and the Count’s young page Cherubino is crazy attracted to all women makes not the wedding chores easier … before the day is over has all the roles and relationships been turned upside down.

The play The Marriage of Figaro, the model of Mozart’s beloved opera of the same name, was a great success after the premiere in 1778and a subtle kick-off to the French Revolution through its brazen rejection of aristocratic privileges. At the Royal Dramatic Theatre was it played for the first time already 1799th

When director Tobias Theorell, latest Dramatic Theatre current with The large vast expanses, takes on this classic he creates a wild mix of different styles which enhances the works extremes rather than trying to downplay them. A starting point is really related to the play’s original title: The Mad Day, or The Marriage of Figaro.

Music it will be of course too! Newly written interspersed with personal interpretations of Mozart’s opera earrings. The Marriage of Figaro is a feast for the senses. It is a story that constantly oscillates between seriousness and farce, politics and eroticism, with a unique tone.
