Movie Info

For some reason, there were a great many filmed operas on the international movie market in the immediate postwar years. This German adaptation of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro is faithful to its source -- too faithful to fully succeed as cinema. The comic elements of Figaro's impending marriage and the many complications ensuing therefrom are surprisingly down-played. Put simply, the laughs are few and far between. The singing, however, is superb: Susannah (Angelika Hauff) and Figaro (Willi Domgraf-Fassbender) do their own vocals, while the rest of the cast is dubbed. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
