The Marriage of Figaro

by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

To be performed in Italian, with English surtitles

Synopsis

Against a 1950s backdrop of craps tables and croupiers, The Marriage of Figaro has been brought into the modern era by the next generation of opera stars at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. One of Mozart’s best loved farcical operas, this Figaro is set in the ‘Casino de Sevilla’, the jewel in the crown of the dictatorial Count’s numerous casino holdings. How did he really accumulate his wealth and power, and how will Figaro and Susanna outwit him?
