Mozart’s delightful opera buffa finds those beloved characters from The Barber of Seville in madcap mayhem once again in this hysterical story about a single day of lunacy. The clever Figaro, now major-domo for the lecherous Count Almaviva, is about to marry his beautiful Susanna, Countess Rosina’s maid. But to do so, he must outwit his employer and his old nemesis, Doctor Bartolo, and avoid the advances of the Countess’s former governess. Will Figaro and Susanna become man and wife? Will common sense triumph over power? This uproarious work is among the most cherished comic gems in the operatic canon and has enchanted audiences for centuries. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
