The Marriage of Figaro

Book Now

16/08/2016–20/08/2016

Susanna and Figaro, servants at the palace of Count Almaviva, have reached their wedding day. But before they can get hitched, some hitches: the Count is lusting after Susanna, an embittered lawyer is plotting against Figaro, and a young man has been spotted jumping out of the window…

A hilarious, tightly-plotted farce set to sublime music, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro is one of the best-loved operas of all time. Following the runaway success of La bohème last year, Opera24 and Darker Purpose return to Grimeborn with a sparkling new production.

Love, lust, deception and confusion combine to turn the natural order on its head – and back again – in this uproarious comedy. A special arrangement by conductor John Jansson for chamber ensemble, and a new translation by director Lewis Reynolds, revel in the wit, colour and charm of Mozart’s music.
