Toss in an amorous teenager, a scheming old maid, a tipsy gardener and a silly young girl,
and you have Mozart’s madcap Marriage of Figaro.
Filled with mistaken identities and plot twists, Mozart deftly maintains a balance
between drama and comedy as the wily Figaro outwits his lecherous
master in one “folle journée” – one crazy day!
With its brilliant, shimmering score and one breathtaking aria after another,
The Marriage of Figaro is Mozart at the height of his genius.
