Le Nozze di Figaro
This is a Blu-Ray recording of a performance at the Royal Opera House, London, in Protected content by Antonio Pappano and produced by David McVicar.

Engaged couple Figaro and Susanna, servants to the Count and Countess Almaviva, are worried that the Count will attempt to seduce Susanna on her impending wedding night. As part of a plan to prevent this from happening, Susanna, the Countess, and Figaro dress the young page, Cherubino, as a girl who will pretend to be Susanna and meet the Count so that the Countess can trap her husband. When the Count interrupts them and orders Cherubino to join the army, they change tack. Susanna and the Countess decide to expose the Count’s infidelity by swapping clothes with each other and arranging a secret meeting with him. Figaro is horrified to see what appears to be Susanna in the Count’s arms but he has been temporarily fooled. When the ladies’ true identities are revealed, the Count begs the Countess for forgiveness. Susanna and Figaro celebrate their long-awaited wedding.

The opera is sung in Italian with English subtitles. It lasts 3 hours and 20 minutes.
