Opera: The Marriage of Figaro

Saturday, January 25, 2020

7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte
Buck Ross, Director
Raymond Harvey, Conductor

Figaro is getting married today, but it’s becoming very complicated. First, his new bride is being chased by his boss, the Count, who makes Harvey Weinstein look like a choirboy. Then, there seems to be something going on between the Countess and a teenage boy whose hormones are running amok. To top it all off, Figaro is being pursued by a lustful cougar who has the legal means to force him to marry her. In the meantime, no one can see anything in the dark. See why this classic comedy, considered by many to be the most perfect opera ever written, can still amuse, provoke, and ultimately move you.

Sung in the original Italian with projected translation over the stage.
