Gratuitous Friday – Luca Pisaroni is Figaro

The Marriage of Figaro, set in a car dealership.

I have not seen this entire production lately, as I loaned the DVD to my Dad.  It's not very regie, mostly because the director doesn't do enough (in my opinion) with the (potentially clever) updated setting (the Almaviva Motors showroom.)  Figaro works out the floor plan on the computer instead of measuring. And later, Cherubino hides in the car.  But Luca Pisaroni and Danielle de Niese  sing beautifully; and they do make a really cute couple.
