Mozart's Comic Tour De Force

From the famous overture to the final glorious ensemble, Mozart's music sparkles with intelligence and wit.


Figaro, the former barber and now valet to the Count, is just hours away from wedding the lovely Susanna, a maid in the household. But alas, Susanna has caught the attention of the Count's wandering eye. The day is soon turned upside down as clever twists and turns, disguises and comic intrigue ensue. Will the servants succeed in outwitting their aristocratic betters? Will romance and forgiveness reign supreme?

Read the full synopsis here.
