By Mozart. Opera Australia. Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House. October 21 – November 2, 2019
This is a welcome revival of Sir David McVicar’s magnificently dramatized and designed 2015 production for Opera Australia.
Many of the original, international cast superbly reprise their roles, notably Ukraine’s Andrei Bondarenko as the autocratic and lustful Count, Russia’s Ekaterina Sadovnikova as his anguished wife and Italian bass Paolo Bordogna as his scheming servant Figaro.
