Opera 24 & Darker Purpose

The Marriage of Figaro

Directed by Lewis Reynolds

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.
