The Marriage of Figaro

Tuesday 22 August, 2017, 7.30 pm

Time: 7.30 pm

Venue: Queens Park Theatre

A new production from Opera Australia.
Mozart’s brilliant comic opera THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO follows the adventures of a household over one crazy day. Masters are lusting over their servants, servants are outwitting their masters – FIGARO is the Downton Abbey of opera, but a whole lot more fun!

Award winning creative duo Michael Gow and Robert Kemp have created a brand new production, featuring stunning period costumes and a clever set. A talented chamber orchestra and chorus of local children will accompany some of Opera Australia’s finest singers performing Mozart’s beautiful music.

In a wealthy household in Seville, Figaro is marrying Susanna, but the count wants to seduce her first. Marcellina wants Figaro and the Countess just wants her husband back. But Susanna is smarter than all of them. After a crazy day of disguise and duplicity, will she get her happily ever after?

Sung in English, performed with a chamber orchestra.
Performance is 2 hours & 45 minutes including one 20-minute interval
