Gustavo Dudamel Leads "Figaro"
Gustavo Dudamel returns to the Staatsoper Berlin for performances of Mozart's iconic Le nozze di Figaro November 7, 9, 11, 13, and 15, 2015. He leads the Staatskapelle Berlin, Staatsopernchor, and a cast of operatic luminaries including Ildebrando D'Arcangelo as the Count, Dorothea Röschmann as the Countess, Anna Prohaska as Susanna, Lauri Vasar as Figaro and Marianne Crebassa as Cherubino. The series of performances at the Schiller Theater marks the premiere of a new production by director Jürgen Flimm with sets designed by Magdalena Gut and costumes by Ursula Kudrna.
Gustavo recently conducted Mozart's opera buffa in 2013 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Los Angeles Master Chorale in a production by Christopher Alden, with sets by architect Jean Nouvel, costumes by Azzedine Alaïa and lighting by Aaron Black.
