Why See The Marriage of Figaro?
Fiona Shaw's madcap take on Mozart's comedy
English National Opera will once again present Fiona Shaw's critically celebrated production of The Marriage Of Figaro, which first premiered in 2011. Now in its second revival, Mozart's enduring comic opera will star Dutch baritone Thomas Oliemans as Figaro, Rhian Lois as his resourceful lover Susanna, Lucy Crowe, as the melancholy Countess, and bass-baritone Ashley Riches as the unfaithful Count, who has his roving eye firmly fixed upon Susannah. Directed by ENO's very own Martyn Brabbins, this quirky take on Figaro is a delightful exploration of human desire and fallibility!
Set over the course of 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!
