Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro is a whirlwind of love, desire, and witty schemes set in luxurious 18th-century Spain. The story follows the complex web of relationships between the Count, his young wife Rosina, their clever and charming valet Figaro, and his betrothed Susanna. As the plot unfolds, a series of passionate encounters, hilarious misunderstandings, and daring disguises ensue, all driven by a desire for forbidden romance and social equality. Opulent and satisfying, with lush orchestration and love stories as tender and temperamental as a soufflé, as a clever servant aims to outwit his masters in a game of love and deception.
