The Marriage of Figaro, Mozart’s comic opera masterpiece, closes the 2018/19 season. It’s a highly anticipated event, with performances by some of today’s most exciting singers.
This much loved opera takes place in one single day of madness at Count Almaviva’s estate outside Seville, Spain. On the eve of their nuptials, barber-turned-valet Figaro and the countess’s maid Susanna enlist the help of other clever servants to thwart the Count’s plans to bed Susanna and expose his philandering ways. For more than 200 years, audiences around the world have reveled in this “upstairs-downstairs” situation comedy, ripe with jealousy, disguise, mistaken identity and deceit!
Alexander Shelley conducts two concert performances, featuring Joshua Hopkins as Figaro and Erin as the Countess Almaviva.
