Read Review

This production of a perennial favourite was one of Covent Garden’s recent unalloyed triumphs. Director David McVicar had thought of a thousand good ideas, with a team that did the Royal Opera House proud, said reviewer John Steane. He put it among the best Figaros – and that’s some very illustrious company indeed. In the pit, musical proceedings were under the sure touch of Antonio Pappano and on stage, “Erwin Schrott, a God’s-gift Figaro, and his Susanna, Miah Persson, must be the handsomest pair in opera,” said JBS. “There’s not a member of the company…who does not contribute worthily.”
