To celebrate their fifth year, Opera on Location join forces with the renowned Sheffield Chamber Orchestra to bring you a special, semi-staged production of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro.
Mozart’s masterpiece is an upbeat and hilarious opera full of twists and turns which have made it such a firm favourite in the operatic world.
The story follows Figaro and Susanna - a young couple trying to marry, only to be prevented by the rich and powerful Count they both work for. Adding to their stress is a fragile Countess, who feeling used and unloved, seeks revenge on her conniving husband. Stir in a subplot of meddling characters, each with their own agendas and schemes and it seems like our heroes will never get the happy ending they both desire. But, will love triumph in the end?
One of Mozart’s best loved operatic works, the opera features many famous arias, ensembles and the ever popular ‘letter duet’. Not to mention the infamous overture, which sets up the hi-jinks, humour and sublime music heard throughout the opera.
This semi-staged production will be sung in English.
