Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro

Revival of the 2010 production
Sung in Italian with English supertitles

This much-loved production of Mozart’s irresistible masterpiece is directed by the great British baritone, Sir Thomas Allen, and is full of humour, subtlety and wit. The bubbling, energetic score sees Mozart at his theatrical best, with gorgeous period designs providing the backdrop for a timeless comedy of social revolution and change.

Once charming, Count Almaviva has become a scheming bully who spends his days pestering the serving girls. Figaro, his head of staff, is engaged to Susanna, but Almaviva has a particular soft spot for her and is doing everything he can to delay their wedding…

Tobias Ringborg conducts an exciting cast including former Jette Parker Young Artists Samuel Dale Johnson and Hanna Hipp; and three of Scotland’s most popular singers, Donald Maxwell, Marie McLaughlin and Eleanor Dennis. Former Scottish Opera Emerging Artist Ben McAteer is Figaro, and Anna Devin (Don Giovanni 2013) is Susanna.
