The Marriage of Figaro (Le mariage de Figaro) subtitled The Craziest Day (La folle journée) is the second in the Figaro trilogy of plays by Beaumarchais and follows the action of The Barber of Seville. Both were considered scandalous at the time due to its depiction of nobleman being outwitted by a quick-witted servant. They were high examples of 18th century light comedy, but now are almost exclusively remembered by the respective operas of Rossini and Mozart. Mozart's Marriage of Figaro is noted for its richness of musical invention and subtle characterization. Classified as an Opera Buffa, Mozart's four-act opera is consistently ranked as one of the most beloved and most performed operas in today's standard repertoire. Full orchestra, English super-titles.
