The play on which Mozart's opera was set (and which was banned in Austria at the time as being subversive!). A riotous comedy where the virtuous unmask the immoral and the quick-witted servants undo their scheming masters. The Count's servant, Figaro, is arranging the final plans for his wedding to his beloved Suzanne, when he stumbles upon his master's plot to evoke the ancient right of droit de seigneur. Can Figaro stop the Count or will the virtuous Suzanne stay a step head of everyone?
