A chaotic whirlwind of mistaken identities makes the wedding day of Figaro and Susanna a lesson in hilarity in this 2010 production, directed by Neil Armfield.
With a witty, fast-moving libretto and hum-along melodies, it’s easy to see why Mozart’s classic comedy continues to charm audiences the world over. Musically, this is the ultimate ensemble opera, with brilliant trios, quartets and even a fantastic sextet laced through the score. Dramatically, it’s the opera with everything: lovers and liaisons, tricks and disguises, lust and laughter.
Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
