Since Peter Zadek arrived from theatre world to produce his first opera, Mozart’s „Le nozze di Figaro“ („The marriage of Figaro“) in Stuttgart in 1983, he has been in demand as an opera director too – with good reason, as our new DVD video makes clear. Zadek’s production of the opera, which combines Brecht’s text with Kurt Weill’s music, was recorded at the 1998 Salzburg festival. The opera was one of the greatest successes of its day when it originally opened in 1931, and ran for over fifty performances. Its songs, most of all „O moon of Alabama“, are still great hits today.
