Fabrizio Della Seta

University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses the underlying logical structure of a dramatic event and the minimum conditions for this event to exist. It analyzes the dramatic scheme of Le mariage de Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro), which focuses on the conflict between the Count and Figaro for possession of Susanna, and applies the concept of “dramatic event” to analyze the Act 2 Finale, taking into account as many of the expressive factors deployed as possible.

Keywords:   dramatic event, dramatic scheme, mariage de figaro, marriage of figaro, expressive factors
