The Marriage of Figaro

Date: 20 Sep 2019

The Countess loves the Count, but he’s got designs on his pretty, witty servant Susanna.

But it’s Susanna’s wedding day, and Figaro has no plans of giving up his bride. During one crazy day of disguises, duplicity, desire and utter madness, the Count is going to get his comeuppance.

Sir David McVicar’s production stars soprano Stacey Alleaume, who continues a thrilling rise with her role debut as Susanna. Andrei Bondarenko reprises his commanding performance as Count Almaviva with Russian soprano Ekaterina Sadovnikova as the Countess. Paolo Bordogna returns with his world-class Figaro, and Guillaume Tourniaire is the maestro.
