LE NOZZE DE FIGARO

Le nozze di Figaro, K. 492, is an opera buffa (comic opera) composed in 1786 in four acts by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, with a libretto in Italian by Lorenzo Da Ponte, based on a stage comedy by Pierre Beaumarchais, La folle journée, ou le Mariage de Figaro (1784).
Figaro premiered at the Burgtheater in Vienna on 1 May 1786. Mozart himself directed the first two performances, conducting seated at the keyboard, the custom of the day. Later performances were by Joseph Weigl. The first production was given eight further performances, all in 1786.
