Santa Fe Opera's 2008 acclaimed production of The Marriage Of Figaro returns this year, directed by Jonathan Kent, with scenic and costume design by Paul Brown, and lighting design by Duane Schuler.

The period costumes have been described as "smashing," and the overall production as "visually gorgeous."

In revisiting Figaro for 2013, lighting designer Duane Schuler notes: "I don't feel that a revival production must look exactly the same. There is always room for improvement! My color preferences may have changed. There may be some new sources or other technology that can be incorporated to make the production better."

Put The Marriage Of Figaro on your summer schedule and join Duane Schuler for a backstage look at this wonderful production as part of Live Design's Backstage At Santa Fe Opera Weekend, July 5-7, 2013, for a truly unique opera experience.
