DetailsCount Almaviva lusts after the delicious Susanna, Figaro's bride to be. The neglected Countess pines for her husband's attentions and, as she tries to make him jealous, love and suspicion abound. Figaro must unravel the threads before he and Susanna can tie the knot. Also performed as Figaro's Wedding and Figaro!. First performed at the Burgtheater in Vienna on 1 May 1786 In 1912 somewhere in rural England, a company of singers gather to perform The Marriage of Figaro, a special one-off performance for the lord of the manor. Amidst the intrigue and slapstick, it slowly becomes apparent that things will never be the same again...This exciting new production of Mozart's opera receives its premiere at the Festival, and will be enjoyed by opera newcomers and die-hard fans alike.
