Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro is a whirlwind of love, desire, and witty schemes set in luxurious 18th-century Spain. The story follows the complex web of relationships between the Count, his young wife Rosina, their clever and charming valet Figaro, and his betrothed Susanna. As the plot unfolds, a series of passionate encounters, hilarious misunderstandings, and daring disguises ensue, all driven by a desire for forbidden romance and social equality.

In this enchanting masterpiece, Mozart’s genius shines through every note, bringing to life the vivid characters and their emotional turmoil. The opera brims with delightful melodies, intricate vocal harmonies, and rapid-fire dialogue, capturing the essence of the characters’ emotions. From the flirtatious exchanges between the quick-witted Susanna and the amorous Count, to the heartfelt soliloquies of Figaro and the passionate outbursts of the lovestruck Cherubino, The Marriage of Figaro enchants the audience with its dynamic interplay of comedy, drama, and musical brilliance. With its timeless themes of love, power, and social class, Mozart’s masterwork continues to captivate audiences around the world, offering a thrilling and unforgettable experience for all who immerse themselves in its exuberant banquet of a world.

“We loved preparing a splendid Don Giovanni, and are just finished a dashing production of Così fan tutte; the appearance of Le nozze di Figaro at the conclusion of this season feels almost inevitable, for this is Mozart’s third collaboration with the redoubtable Lorenzo Da Ponte (whose long life story makes such a delightful read). We’ve met the Count and Countess before, though in an opera written a bit later by someone else; here, in Figaro, in their now settled noble household, whose peace is threatened by a philandering husband, Mozart gives us as charming a version of Upstairs/Downstairs as anyone could wish—a ‘perfect’ comedy, glittering with musical invention.”          – Timothy Vernon, Founding Artistic Director
