THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO | LONDON COLISEUM | 16 OCT - 23 NOV 2014
Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro whisks us through the events of one crazy day as Figaro, the Count’s valet, tries to wed Susanna, the Countess’s maid, before their philandering master can bed her first.
Filled with Mozart’s glorious music, The Marriage of Figaro is widely regarded to be one of the greatest comic operas ever written.
Fiona Shaw’s buzzing production sees its plot of sexual intrigue, mistaken identities and unexpected revelations unravel with clock-like precision within the confines of a maze-like household in which the servants are perfectly capable of thwarting their masters at every time.
In this production of The Marriage of Figaro, David Stout and Mary Bevan star as the wily servants Figaro and Susanna, alongside Benedict Nelson as Count Almaviva and Sarah-Jane Brandon as the wronged Countess.
Conductor Jaime Martin returns to ENO following his debut last year in Rossini’s Barber of Seville.
