The Almaviva household is fleeing the chaos of the Revolution, pursued by the evil Major who is plotting to kill them all. Susanna's frustration with her increasingly cynical husband, Figaro, propels her towards a one-night stand with Cherubino, now a rather sleazy nightclub owner who calls himself The Cherub. Meanwhile, the Count and Countess are scandalised by the revelation of each others' infidelities. They finally return to what remains of the Almaviva residence, and the Count and Countess are reconciled with one another, and with their fate, as revolutionary troops advance.
