Kort biografi
Pierre-Augustin Caron earned a post as King Louis XV's personal watchmaker at age 24. He married a wealthy widow and bought a position at court, enlarging his surname to fit his new rank by adding "de Beaumarchais." He played more roles in any given year than most people manage in a lifetime:  inventor, merchant, ambassador to Spain, spy, gunrunner, prisoner, reformer, outcast, music teacher, composer, and of course, playwright. His fortunes rose and fell but he always shook off his failures and started over. More than any other playwright of his time, Beaumarchais was the inheritor of a rich tradition and the herald of major changes to come. The Barber of Seville, which premiered in 1775, was a smash hit. The Marriage of Figaro (1778), though widely read, was banned by Louis XVI and not performed in Paris until 1784.

Anmeldelser

Figaro is a well-known and beloved figure from the operas of Rossini and Mozart. The origin of the stories for these operas were the three plays from Beaumarchais. This translation of the plays from David Coward for the Oxford World Classic series reveals how witty and clever the original plays were. This edition also has an appropriate level of annotations to explain the more obscure references.

The first two plays follow the story of the operas closely. The third play, however, is not a comedy. It is, instead, a drama with an Iago-style villain who Figaro needs to outwit. This book is strongly recommended especially for fans of the Figaro operas.… (mere)

El libro de Bruguera constituye una buena edición crítica de tres de las más famosas obras teatrales del autor, que dieron origen a varias óperas de compositores tan importantes como Mozart, Rossini o Darius Milhaud. Lástima que estas ediciones hayan desaparecido de la circulación.

Esta es la comedia original que sirvió a Rossini como asunto y libreto para su famosa ópera; y el personaje, Fígaro, que tanto dio que hablar también en óperas de Paisiello y Mozart.
