Why See Florida Grand Opera - The Marriage of Figaro?
Mozart's Comic Opera Masterpiece
The Florida Grand Opera's 78th season continues with a rollicking staging of Mozart's enduring opera buffa, The Marriage of Figaro. Composed in 1786, the high-spirited masterpiece was an immediate success thanks to its revolutionary mixture of love, revenge, disguise, hilarious hijinks, and instantly memorable melodies. The fast-paced farcical romp continues to be an audience favorite in the opera houses of today.
Filled with more twists and turns than Trump's relationship with Russia, The Marriage of Figaro explores territory that would have surely raised a few eyebrows in its day, i.e. the contentious relationship between the lower and ruling classes. Set in Spain, serial love rat Count Almaviva has set his sights on his Countess' maid Susanna, much to the chagrin of his valet Figaro, who is Susanna's betrothed. The Countess, Susanna, Figaro and their fellow servants conspire to punish the rapscallion Count with hysterical results.
Opening night: 26 January 2019
