Virginia Opera: The Marriage of Figaro
By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
One of the greatest operas ever written, The Marriage of Figaro is a witty, yet profound tale of love, revenge and forgiveness. Figaro, valet to Count Almaviva, and Susanna, maid to the Countess, are set to be married, but the Count has his own designs on Susanna’s virtue! Figaro is determined to prevent the Count from compromising his fiancée. What follows is a hilarious exercise in duplicity that leads to a blissful, memorable finale all set to Mozart’s music.
