Written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1786, this comic opera ranks among the most commonly performed worldwide. The sequel to the Barber of Seville, this masterpiece paints a picture of a ridiculous day. A skirt-chasing count seeks to steal the soon-to-be-bride, Susanna, of his servant Figaro, despite being obligated to a countess. In retaliation, the trio conspire to expose the count's misdeeds. This causes the count to force Figaro to instead marry a woman who turns out to be his mother. Eventually, somehow, Figaro and Susanna rekindle the flame between the nobility and the four of them pair up happily ever after. (JF)

Change is in the air and Figaro's world is turning upside down. On the eve of the wily barber's marriage to Susanna, Count Almaviva's wandering eye has landed on the lovely bride-to-be.

Servant and master go head-to-head, and even the Countess herself must spring into battle when she learns of her husband's plans. Or is she embroiled in a liaison of her own?

Through Figaro and Susanna's clever manipulations, the Count's love for his Countess is finally restored.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
