The Marriage of Figaro

24th February @ 7:30 pm - 25th February @ 5:30 pm AEDT

AUD30 – AUD75

Mozart’s profound and sublime Marriage of Figaro is set on the wedding day of Susanna and Figaro in the home of the Count and Countess Almaviva. What ensues is a crazy day full of twists and turns as the servants outwit the Count who has dishonourable intentions toward Susanna. Mix this in with a page boy crazy with hormones, a couple hell bent on revenge against Figaro, a nosy music master, a naughty schoolgirl, a drunk gardener, and a noble Countess who is much wronged and you have a comedy of intrigue, misunderstanding and transcendent forgiveness.

The Marriage of Figaro, sung in English, is being performed by members of the Richard Divall Programme, Melbourne Opera’s exceptional programme for emerging and developing opera singers. These two performances offer a sneak look at a performance usually staged in private clubs. Fully costumed in the style of Downton Abbey, directed by Suzanne Chaundy and with a chamber orchestra under the baton of Raymond Lawrence and Greg Hocking, this is a unique opportunity to see our future stars of opera in an intimate staging.
