What can I expect?

The Marriage of Figaro is one of Mozart's masterpieces: an opera that reveals much about the human condition through wit, grace, and joyous musical invention. ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins conducts this second revival of director Fiona Shaw’s critically acclaimed production. 

Today we may think of The Marriage of Figaro as classic and dependable, but when Mozart began working on the opera in 1785, it was an iconoclastic choice. The opera is based on the French play, "The Mad Day, or The Marriage of Figaro," written in 1778. The play was banned in France and also in Vienna. Despite protests from other composers, Mozart adapted the play with the help of Lorenzo Da Ponte, who penned the libretto. Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro premiered in Vienna in May 1786. But when the city did not appreciate it, the production moved to Prague, where it opened in 1787 - and it became a massive success.

The titular marriage is that of Figaro and Susanna, a valet and a maid who work for the wealthy Count Almaviva. As the day of Figaro and Susanna's wedding approaches, it becomes clear that Count Almaviva has a plan to seduce Susanna before the ceremony can take place. Susanna and Figaro conspire with the forsaken Countess to outwit her husband and teach him a lesson in fidelity. But when the Count retaliates, Figaro and Susanna must up their game of clever tricks - not just for their own benefit, but for the Countess'.
