Figaro, a barber, matchmaker and good-natured schemer, has fallen in love. On the eve of his marriage to Susanna, his master Count, Almaviva, sets his wandering eye on the bride-to-be. Servant and master engage in a battle of the wits as this opera covers a single day of madcap adventure.
With some of the most recognizable music ever written for the opera stage, Mozart and his librettist, Da Ponte, explore the rise of the servant class as they overthrow the ruling class with humor, wit and biting satire.
Sung in Italian with projected English translations. Approximate run time: three hours and fifteen minutes, including one intermission.
