A wedding day to remember – but not for the reasons you’d expect.
It’s all go on Count Almaviva’s country estate. His servants Figaro and Susanna can’t wait to get married this evening – though for some reason the Count thinks he has first dibs on the bride. At least Susanna has the Countess on her side. But chaos threatens as Cherubino’s teenage hormones run rampant, Marcellina drags up dirt from Figaro’s past, and identities become confused. Bursting with insights into human nature, The Marriage of Figaro is a faultlessly constructed comedy, buoyed along by Mozart’s sublime music.
