An adaptation of the third part of the Mozart's Da Ponte Trilogy by Director Tom Goossens.


Le Nozze is the third part after Don Juan and Così of the well-known DAPONTETRILOGY. A man and a woman with life experience and a flailing boy speak in a language based on Mozart and Da Ponte’s Le Nozze di Figaro. With only the most essential attributes, they construct the estate and the marriage of a count and a countess, their servants and their relatives. To breathe new life into their love, the countess dresses up as the servant girl the count has a crush on. The count wants to spend the first wedding night with the servant and feels like her brand-new groom. The young Cherubino is in love and has to disguise himself in order to keep seeing the countess. Everyone dresses up as everyone else.


“If 'Le Nozze' is a fancy-dress ball, it’s certainly one that’s full of self-confidence, jokingly mocking genre conventions and dressing Mozart’s music in the fresh new outfit it has been crying out for.”

De Standaard **** - 5 August 2019

“... Goossens’ talent for finding the right people should not be underestimated. Mozart’s opera buffa unfolds in a minimal but effective set ... Quite apart from the originality and strength of Goossens’ libretto, which is yet another gem of parlando and speak-singing, in this work two generations and two theatrical styles meet...”
