The Marriage of Figaro

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

1 Feb - 21 Mar 2020

Dates & venues

It’s Figaro’s wedding day, let the shenanigans commence

Trouble clouds the horizon. Figaro’s master, Count Almaviva is out to bed his bride-to-be Susanna. Meanwhile the heartbroken Countess finds herself the object of the page-boy Cherubino’s infatuation and to top it all off, if Figaro cannot repay a debt to the housekeeper Marcellina, he’ll have to marry her instead!

Mozart’s joyous farce of mistaken identity, misunderstanding and comic twists is bursting at the seams with invention and wit in this hit production by Jo Davies (Kiss Me, Kate). The sublime music bubbles along with comic high spirits, conveying all the delight and pain of love and the agony and ecstasy of desire.
