Mozart’s sublime comedic masterpiece about relationships and human nature takes place on a single crazy day. The Count’s valet, Figaro, is engaged to the Countess’s maid, Susanna.

Find out as Mozart’s incomparable music illuminates every moment, showing us these wonderful characters with all their vulnerabilities and virtues.
