Hilarity of complication
Regarded as one of the greatest operas ever written, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro (Le nozze di Figaro) is a screwball comedy complete with disguises, surprises, and compromises.

Figaro, the wily barber and part-time matchmaker, has finally fallen in love. But, like everything else in his life, it's complicated.

On the eve of Figaro’s marriage to Susanna, his master, Count Almaviva, sets his wandering eye on the lovely bride-to-be. Servant and master go head to head, and even the Countess Rosina gets in on the action when she learns of her husband’s desires. But is she embroiled in a dangerous liaison of her own?

From the opening notes to the final curtain, Mozart’s score delivers a tangled love story with great farce and satire.
