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. The only problem is that the Count is eager to exercise his right as lord of the manor and have his way with Susanna. But the endlessly resourceful Susanna is too smart for him, and the two servants and the Countess join together to get the better of the Count. Will true love prevail? Find out as Mozart’s incomparable music illuminates every moment, showing us these wonderful characters with all their vulnerabilities and virtues.
