Figaros Hochzeit

(GDR, 1949, dir. Georg Wildhagen, 109 min., b/w)

This film presents the question of whether the postwar period would be marked by cultural continuity or a radical break with the past. Mozart’s work serves as the basis for this first GDR opera film, but the screenplay diverges from the original libretto.
