Tune of the Day: Se a caso Madama
from Mozart's “The Marriage of Figaro”, arranged for two flutes
This lively duet between Figaro and Susanna appears at the beginning of Act I of Mozart's famous opera Le nozze di Figaro, right after “Cinque, dieci”. Susanna is trying to explain Figaro why she doesn't like the room the Count has destined to them: she is bothered by its proximity to the Count's chambers, as it seems he has been making advances toward her.
