A 45-minute whistle-stop tour of Mozart’s playful opera.
Figaro and Susanna are getting married, but trouble clouds the horizon. The lecherous Count Almaviva is out to bed the bride, the lovesick pageboy Cherubino keeps landing himself in hot water and, to top it all off, if Figaro cannot repay his debt to Marcellina the housekeeper, he’ll have to marry her instead!
Be entertained by four professional opera singers and an accordionist in this short opera packed with mistaken identity, misunderstanding and comic twists.
There is no need to book, just turn up and enjoy!
