Some years following The Barber of Seville, Count Almaviva develops a wandering eye for his former matchmaker’s bride-to-be. As the Count and his cronies conspire to thwart the wedding of Figaro and Susannah, Figaro and his friends scheme up a plan of their own.
Featuring Mozart at the height of his creative genius, in what many consider to be the greatest opera of all time, is a tangled tale of farce and folly ending, at last, in love. Below its madcap surface, an age-old wisdom is revealed: wealth and power are no match for ingenuity and authenticity. Musically sophisticated, yet catchy; screwball, yet poignant; this opera sparkles with genius from overture to finale.
