Why See The Marriage of Figaro?

Classical & Opera

Betrothal, betrayal and deliciously bad behaviour

English National Opera will once again present The Marriage Of Figaro, in this fresh production from British theatermaker Joe Hill-Gibbins. Mozart's most enduring comic opera stars David Ireland as the titular Figaro, alongside Mary Bevan as Susannah. This quirky take on 'Figaro is a delightful exploration of human desire and fallibility!

What is the story?

Set over one madcap day, we join the characters of Figaro, Rosina, and Count Almivira from The Barber of Seville, and the servants that have to outwit their increasingly outrageous behaviour. Figaro and Susanna are at last to be married; however, they haven't counted on the arrival of several nefarious characters, including the Count, Marcellina, and Dr Bartolo, each determined to break up the happy couple and have them for themselves. However, even more trouble arrives in the shape of the handsome teenager Cherubino, who is also determined to have Susanna - but he also declares his love to all the women in the house..!
