Opera Worcester presents The Marriage of Figaro
About this Event
Thursday 15th – Saturday 17th March, Thursday & Friday at 7.30pm, Saturday at 4pm only
The Marriage of Figaro is Mozart’s much loved, irresistible comic masterpiece: full of humour, subtlety and wit, this bubbling, energetic score sees Mozart at his theatrical best. Love, lust, deception and confusion combine to turn the natural order on its head and back again in this uproarious comedy.
The story could be out of an episode of Downton Abbey, with servants and masters providing the backdrop for a timeless comedy of social revolution and change. Figaro and Susanna, servants at the palace of Count Almaviva, are looking forward to their wedding day – but the once charming Count has his lusty eye on Susanna. With the help of Almaviva’s wife the Countess and the page Cherubino, Susanna and Figaro plan to outwit the Count. A hilarious farce ensues, all set to the sublime music of Mozart, in one of the best loved operas of all time. Not to be missed.
