Does the "Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter" work together with the "Apple Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter"?
I want to connect a multichannel (firewire-only) audio interface "RME Fireface 800" to the new mac book.

Yes. I have successfully used the thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt 2 adapter and then connected a thunderbolt 2 to firewire 400 cable to my Presonus Studio Live 16.4.2's firewire 400 port. I have also done the same with a thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt 2 adapter to a thunderbolt 2 to firewire 800 cable to my Presonus Studio Live 32.4.2's firewire 800 port. You might need to experiment with the order in which you turn the equipment on...

Yes. Make sure that your FireWire device uses less than 10W of power though, but an audio interface should definitely be fine. Source: apple support document HT207266 "About the compatibility of the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter" - do a find for "firewire".
