Le Nozze di Figaro (2007)

Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte
Performed in English translation

In this update, the characters take the role of politicians, with the Count and Countess cast as the Kennedy presidential couple ... If the applause given after the opera’s first performance is any indication, this DHO production is worth the ticket price.
— The Harvard Crimson
