The Marriage of Figaro
Music by Wolfgang Mozart, Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte
Produced in cooperation with the School of Music and featuring the KU Symphony Orchestra under the direction of David Neely.

Like a great Shakespeare comedy, The Marriage of Figaro employs fully dimensional characters to poke fun at the human condition. The plot is filled with love, sex, betrayal, remorse, and class warfare. Figaro and Susanna, employed by the Count and Countess Almaviva, are to be married, but the philandering Count wants a taste of the bride first. Susanna and the Countess, quite aware of this, attempt a plan to foil the Count. If that weren’t enough, the housekeeper Marcellina claims Figaro promised to marry her…and she’s holding him to that. The comic storyline is of course enhanced by the rich and soaring music of one of Mozart’s greatest scores.
