C O M ' A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR: Le Nozze di Figaro is the UBC Opera Ensemble's celebration of Mozart's 250 t h birthday. What a privilege and pleasure it is, to be able to bring his opera to life once more, celebrating his genius and the wonderful talent of our young performers here at the School of Music. A second reason for bringing this opera to UBC's Chan Centre at this time is that the Opera Ensemble and its Director, Professor Nancy Hermiston, would like to acknowledge and celebrate the wonderful contribution that our President, Dr. Martha Piper, has made to this university, as well as to the cause of higher education across the province, the country, and indeed the world. The UBC Opera Ensemble has appreciated Dr. Piper's unfailing interest in their work and her generous support for their tours and performances across B.C., C a n a d a and Europe. We wish her the very best in her future endeavours and want her to know that we will miss her vision, energy and dedication to this university. But most of all we will miss her. Thank you Dr. Piper. We dedicate these performances of Mozart's masterpiece to you. UBC Opera Ensemble UBCMUSIC By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Libretto by Lorenzo d a Ponte Opera in Four Acts Premiere, May 1,1786, Vienna. Director, Nancy Hermiston Conductor, Tyrone Paterson featuring UBC Opera Ensemble and the UBC Symphony Orchestra There will be one 20-minute intermission Chan Shun Concert Hall March 2,3,4,5,2006 This production is made possible by generous assistance of the Chan Endowment Fund of the University of British Columbia and the David Spencer Endowment Encouragement Fund UBC ACT I. A country estate outside Seville, late eighteenth century. While preparing for their wedding, the valet Figaro learns from the maid Susanna that their philandering employer. Count Almaviva, has designs on her. At this the servant vows to outwit his master. Before long the scheming Bartolo enters the servants' quarters with his housekeeper, Marcellina, who wants Figaro to marry her to cance l a debt he cannot pay. After Marcellina and Susanna trade insults, the amorous page Cherubino arrives, reveling in his infatuation with all women. He hides when the Count shows up, furious because he caught Cherubino flirting with Barbarina, the gardener's daughter. The Count pursues Susanna but conceals himself when the gossiping music master Don Basillo approaches. The Count steps forward, however, when Basilio suggests that Cherubino has a crush on the Countess. Almaviva is enraged further when he discovers Cherubino in the room. Figaro returns with fellow servants, who praise the Count's progressive reform in abolishing the droit du seigneur — the right of a noble to take a manservant's p lace on his wedding night. Almaviva assigns Cherubino to his regiment in Seville and leaves Figaro to cheer up the unhappy adolescent. ACT II. In her boudoir, the Countess laments her husband's waning love but plots to chasten him, encouraged by Figaro and Susanna. They will send Cherubino, disguised as Susanna, to a romantic' assignation with the Count. Cherubino, smitten with the Countess, appears, and the two women begin to dress the page for his farcical rendezvous. While Susanna goes out to find a ribbon, the Count knocks at the door, furious to find it locked. Cherubino quickly hides in a closet, and the Countess admits her husband, who, when he hears a noise, is skeptical of her story that Susanna is inside the wardrobe. He takes his wife to fetch some tools with which to force the closet door. Meanwhile, Susanna, having observed everything from behind a screen, helps Cherubino out a window, and then takes his p lace in the closet. Both Count and Countess are amazed to find her there. All seems well until the gardener, Antonio, storms in with crushed geraniums from a flowerbed below the window. Figaro, who has run in to announce that the wedding is ready, pretends It was he who jumped from the window, faking a sprained ankle. Marcellina, Bartolo and Basllio burst into the room waving a court summons for Figaro, which delights the Count, as this gives him an excuse to delay the wedding. ACT III. In an audience room where the wedding is to take p lace, Susanna leads the Count on with promises of a rendezvous in the garden. The nobleman, however, grows doubtful when he spies her conspiring with Figaro; he vows revenge. Marcellina is astonished but thrilled to discover that Figaro is in fact her long-lost natural son by Bartolo. Mother and son embrace, provoking Susanna's anger until she too learns the truth. Finding a quiet moment, the Countess recalls her past happiness, then joins Susanna in composing a letter that invites the Count to the garden that night, Later, during the marriage ceremony of Figaro and Susanna, the bride manages to slip the note, sealed with a hatpin, to the Count, who pricks his finger, dropping the pin, which Figaro observes. ACT IV. In the moonlit garden, Barbarina, after unsuccessfully trying to find the lost hatpin, tells Figaro and Marcellina about the coming assignation between the Count and Susanna. Basilio counsels that it is wise to play the fool. Figaro inveighs against women and Hides when he sees Susanna and the countess approach readying themselves for their masquerade. Alone, Susanna rhapsodizes on her love for Figaro, but he, overhearing, thinks she means the Count. Susanna hides in time to see Cherubino woo the Countess—now disguised in Susanna's cloak— until Almaviva chases him away and sends his wife, whom he thinks is Susanna, to an arbor, to which he will follow later. By now Figaro understands the joke and, joining the fun, makes exaggerated love to Susanna in her Countess disguise. The Count returns, seeing, or so he thinks, Figaro with his wife. Outraged, he calls everyone to witness his judgment, but now the real Countess appears and reveals the ruse. Grasping the truth at last, the Count begs her pardon. All are reunited, and so ends this "mad day" at the court of the Almavivas.
