Le Nozze di Figaro - December 13 - December 16, 2018

North Broward Preparatory School


On behalf of Mrs. Ecoff and the Fine Arts Department, I’m honored to welcome you to this evening’s production of Le Nozze di Figaro
(The Marriage of Figaro). I’m so proud of the students and faculty whose dedication and enthusiastic efforts brought this exceptional production to life. It is a clear testament to the many hours of creative and joyful rehearsal that went into preparing for today’s performance. Through this process, it is deeply rewarding to witness our children grow creatively, academically, and in self-concept.

While I’m confident that tonight you will be thoroughly entertained, for us the journey is equally important and central to our school’s mission of accelerating each student’s academic achievement and personal growth. 

We are grateful to be able to offer these life changing opportunities to our children.

I’d also like to take this occasion to thank the many parent volunteers and supporters who contributed so much to this evening’s success.

Message from Co-Director


On our first day of rehearsal this year, I pointed out to the students the fact that they, students in America who come from all over the world, have the honor to perform a piece that was originally a French play that takes place in Spain, composed by an Austrian into an Italian Opera. This speaks wonders to the power of art and music and the place that it takes in our culture here at North Broward. Music is our common language and art transcends cultural barriers.

Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) is one of the Mozart’s musical gems and one of the great master works in classical music. It has been performed thousands of times a year, for the past 232 years. This past year alone, there were over 100 different productions performed by professional companies around the world. This is largely in part to the brilliant composition of Mozart, but also because Beaumarchais created characters that are incredibly relatable.


I hope that tonight you will come with us to this world of love, marriage, betrayal, mistaken identities, and friendships that stand the test of time. We all hope that Susanna and Figaro are to be married and the Count might just learn a lesson or two. Welcome to Seville!
