The Marriage of Figaro (Le Nozze di Figaro) is a comic opera composed in 1786 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, with an Italian libretto written by Lorenzo Da Ponte. It tells how the servants Figaro and Susanna succeed in getting married, foiling the efforts of their philandering employer Count Almaviva to seduce Susanna, and teaching him a lesson in fidelity.
The opera is a cornerstone of the repertoire and appears consistently among the top 10 of best operas ever written.
This world-premiere production will feature the Sephardic origins of Lorenzo Da Ponte and will be directed and adapted by David Serero.
Starring David Serero (Figaro), Hannah Madeleine Goodman (Susanna), Charles Gray (Count), Jennifer Zamorano (Countess), and Allegra Durante (Cherubino).
