Opera Australia, The Marriage of Figaro


The Downton Abbey of opera but heaps more fun!

Mozart’s brilliant opera The Marriage of Figaro follows the adventures of a household over one crazy day. Masters are lusting after their servants, servants are outwitting their masters – it’s the opera with everything: lovers and liaisons, disguises and desires, tricks and laughter.

Award-winning creative duo Michael Gow and Robert Kemp have created a brand new production, featuring stunning period costumes and a clever set. A talented chamber orchestra and chorus of local children will accompany some of Opera Australia’s finest singers performing Mozart’s beautiful music..

In a wealthy household in Seville, Figaro is marrying Susanna, but the Count wants to seduce her first. Marcellina wants Figaro and the Countess just wants her husband back. But Susanna is smarter than all of them. After a crazy day of disguise and duplicity, will she get her happily ever after?

It’s a delightful night out, suitable for the whole family.
