The dramatic and musical climax of The Marriage of Figaro, perhaps Mozart’s operatic masterpiece, is famously marked by the unexpected forgiveness of the Count by the Countess, whom the count has infamously refused to forgive earlier in the opera.
This three-hour evening workshop will explore the musical and psychological ramifications of forgiveness, false forgiveness, and the refusal to forgive within couple relationships. Mozart's great opera will be explored from this perspective, and attendees will be encouraged to associate to related clinical examples from the consulting room.
Attention will also be given to two other great Mozart operas, Don Giovanni and Cosi fan tutte, in which issues around forgiveness are also key. It will be argued that Mozart’s very differing and contrasting realisations of the variations around this core human and couple dynamic through his unique dramatic, verbal and musical talents may partially account for the reputation of these operas for depth and universality. Attendees are encouraged to remind themselves of the three operas before the event.
Francis Grier is a Training Analyst and Supervisor of the British Psychoanalytical Society and a Member of Tavistock Relationships. He is currently working on a paper on this subject for Couple and Family Psychoanalysis, so this workshop will be part of a work in progress.
