The servants turn the tables on the masters in Mozart’s biting and sexually charged comedy about the established social order being tossed on its head. Today, Figaro rocks with the same revolutionary spirit that made it such a popular success at its 1786 premier. Experience an intoxicating take on one of the great ensemble comedies in all of opera, with its endless supply of unforgettable melodies popularized in the movie The Shawshank Redemption. (Sung in Italian, with projected translations in English and Spanish.)
Each program is accompanied by a pre-show lecture an hour before curtain with a talk-back session immediately following the performance.
