Audio described in-house.
It’s Figaro’s wedding day – what could possibly go wrong? Figaro and Susanna are getting married, but trouble clouds the horizon. Figaro’s master, Count Almaviva, is out to bed his bride-to-be Susanna. Meanwhile the heartbroken Countess finds herself the object of Cherubino’s adolescent passion. To top it all off, if Figaro cannot repay a debt to the housekeeper Marcellina, he’ll have to marry her instead! Mozart’s joyous farce of mistaken identity and misunderstanding, heartache and forgiveness, is bursting at the seams with invention and wit in this hit production. The sublime music bubbles along with comic high spirits, conveying all the delight and pain of love, and the agony and ecstasy of desire.
The performance will last 3 hours and is sung in English.
Audio notes will be sent out beforehand, and you can book onto the pre-show touch tour where you get to walk around designer Leslie Travers’ gorgeous sets and meet a member of the cast. The set contains elements such as grand but peeling wallpaper, huge French windows with special rain effect, and a huge ornate bed covered in heavy damask fabrics.
