Why See Opera Philadelphia: The Marriage Of Figaro?
A Fresh new production of Mozart's popular comedy
A new production by the accomplished Opera Philadelphia, conducted by Corrado Rovaris and directed by Stephen Lawless, the farcical comedy sees Mozart's wily hero in love and about to be married to the lovely Susannah. However, it would appear that he is not the only suitor who has his eyes on her. Now Figaro must drum up all his wit and guile to thwart this would-be bride-thief, whilst trying not to cause offence; after all, this competitor is his employer, the Count! Discover why Figaro is one of opera's most-loved heroes in this screwball comedy opera!
From the opening chords to the final curtain, this outrageous comedy opera utilizes disguises, surprises, and compromises. While barber and Count go toe to toe for Susanna, it would appear that even the Countess Rosina has her own action on the side, and is determined to get involved when she learns of her husband's wandering eye. Nobody is safe when hearts and minds are pitted against each other!
