It is impossible to escape its rhythmical power, spiralling crescendos, absurd ensembles or highlights such as Figaro’s tongue-twister aria, Largo al factotum! For our revival, Lawrence Brownlee returns to Zurich as Almaviva, having celebrated a great success here as Lord Arturo Talbo in Bellini’s I puritani. His Rosina is – for the first time at Zurich Opera House – the young American mezzo-soprano Elizabeth De-Shong. As the crafty Figaro, our ensemble member Levente Molnár will concoct the intrigues that lead to the happy end. Enrique Mazzola, a refined expert in the Italian repertoire, will be at the rostrum.
