One of the most celebrated and delightfully amusing operas ever written, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro involves a wildly entertaining parade of mistaken identities, cross-dressing and infidelity. The opera recounts a single “mad” day in the palace of Count Almaviva, whose wife, Rosina, unhappy in her married life, is pursued by the Count’s page. At the same time, Count Almaviva is pursuing his servant Susanna, who is engaged to Figaro, the Count’s valet. The marital madness comes to a head that evening when all find themselves on the palace grounds, where a hilarious series mistaken identities result in the Count’s humiliation and forgiveness by the Countess. Performed in Italian with English supertitles.
