The Marriage of Figaro

Next date: Jul 28, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

The music and characters of Mozart’s beloved Marriage of Figaro have captured the hearts of opera lovers since Figaro’s premiere in Vienna in 1786. Servants Figaro and his promised Susanna prepare for their wedding, only to find that his employer, Count Almaviva, has impure intentions. Fearing that the Count wants to seduce Susanna, Figaro sets about scheming to outsmart him. Meanwhile, the lovely Countess, to whom Susanna is ever faithful, begins to suspect the same and devises her own trap to catch the Count in his mischief. The classes battle in a light-hearted comedy sung in Italian and featuring some of Mozart’s most beautiful melodies.
