NVC ARTS returned to Glyndebourne in 1994 for the opening of the beautiful, new opera house and a recording of an opera closely associated with Glyndebourne; Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro. Stephen Medcalf's production is complemented by John Gunter's sparsely furnished sets, offset by the rich greens, reds and blues in the scenery and costumes. A perfect Glyndebourne cast includes Gerald Finley and Alison Hagley who give touching performances of Figaro and Susanna. Andreas Schmidt is a strong and handsome Count Almaviva, Renée Fleming is a ravishing Countess and Marie-Ange Todorovitch is an irresistably love-sick Cherubino. Bernard Haitink draws polished playing from the London Philharmonic.
“I've fallen in love with new Glyndebourne's new Susanna and Figaro, Alison Hagley and Gerald Finley”
“Pure magic ... Bernard Haitink conducted the LPO in an eloquent performance, beautifully played, and beautifully audible in the excellent new house”
Awards Issue 2011
“Gerald Finley and Alison Hagley are well-matched as the servant couple and Renee Fleming's creamy Countess is a joy.”
