Figaro Gets Married

Staged Reading

Director

Luka Martin Škof

Opening night

Small Stage

Matiček, i.e. Figaro by Emil Filipčič is set in a space ship. It is in the course of the recent war in the Balkans that count Almaviva, Figaro’s master, sees his escape into space as his only solution. Social decadence is in full proportion to a catastrophe and chaos raging on Earth. The plotline of Linhart’s Matiček has been labelled as frivolous, while in Filipčič’s probe on it, however, the lascivious protagonists find an outlet in the realm of various sexual perversions. The author does follow the structure of Linhart’s situational comedy, but adds several other characters, who are all, one way or another, linked to the Balkan war. They end up involved in a chaotic sexual-political orgy that Filipčič underscores with a Babylonian confusion of languages and dialects. Using his characteristic ludic approach and unbridled comedy imagination lurking in the background of an imminent catastrophe Filipčič presents a funny contemporary version of Figaro characterized by gallows humour.
