The Marriage of Figaro
Russia is not the first place many people think of as a source for Mozart operas. While not unheard of, Mozart is more associated with western Europe. This may be changing, thanks to a dynamic and driven conductor named Teodor Currentzis, founder of an orchestra and chorus named Musicaeterna. Currentzis has embarked on a remarkable series of the three masterpieces created by Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo da Ponte. My review illustrates what this tireless conductor and exuberant orchestra and soloists have accomplished.
