– Pierre Beaumarchais: The Marriage of Figaro
Following the success of their Iliad, Stathis Livathinos and his award-winning troupe are now presenting their new project, a masterpiece of the French classical repertory, Beaumarchais’ Marriage of Figaro, in a new translation by Elsa Adrianou.
Written on the eve of the French Revolution, which it was seen to foreshadow, the Marriage of Figaro is one of the most fascinating theatrical works of the 18th century. It forms part of the famous trilogy by Beaumarchais, on which two of the world’s best loved operas were based: Marriage of Figaro and Barber of Seville.
Apart from its political dimension, the work is also a frenzied comedy which exploits the cast’s talents for improvisation and it brings together many of the ideological preoccupations of the Enlightenment.
