The Marriage of Figaro
Time Out says
Mozart's frothy comedy of romantic entanglements is getting an edgy update, thanks to theatre director Joe Hill-Gibbins's new production for ENO. Hill-Gibbins' controversial back-catalogue includes a 'Midsummer Night's Dream' at the Young Vic that played on a giant heap of mud, and a voyeuristic 2014 take on 'Powder Her Face' for ENO. If the trailer for 'The Marriage of Figaro' is anything to go by, he's opted for a relatively restrained modern dress take on this classic opera - one that's packed with familiar tunes.
