Glyndebourne - The Marriage of Figaro

November 24, 2022

One wedding; one marriage on the rocks; one scheme; one day.

Why See Glyndebourne - The Marriage of Figaro?

Classical & Opera

If you want to dance, Count, I'll play the tune.

Glorious Glyndebourne returns this winter taking the show on the road, bringing a special week of classic operas, kicking off with the mad-cap misadventures of Figaro as he prepares for his nuptials in Mozart's revolutionary opera comedy. This 2012 Michael Grandage production updates the action to the last days of Franco's Spain, where the sharp satire of this unique opera steps centre stage.

What is the story?

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.
