Grandage married to ‘Figaro’

Director returns to Glyndebourne in 2012

Michael Grandage will continue his post-Donmar career with a new production of Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro” in June as part of Glyndebourne Opera’s 2012 season.

The production marks the helmer’s return to the internationally prestigious U.K. house following his operatic debut last year with Britten’s “Billy Budd.” It follows Grandage’s Met debut with “Don Giovanni” (opening Oct. 13) and his spring Gotham production of “Evita” at the Marquis starring Elena Roger, Ricky Martin and Michael Cerveris.

Designed by Christopher Oram (Tony winner for “Red”), “Figaro” is one of three operas in the six-strong season to be lit by Paule Constable (Tony winner for “War Horse”). Her other productions will be Janacek’s “The Cunning Little Vixen,” helmed by Melly Still (“Coram Boy”), and a revival of “La Boheme” helmed by David McVicar. The season also include a double bill of Ravel’s “L’Heure Espagnole” and “L’Enfant et les Sortileges” directed by Laurent Pelly.
