The Marriage of Figaro
The marriage of Figaro to the fetching, feisty Susanna is set, but what should be a blissful day to remember is quickly overrun by a perfect storm of scheming, confusion, and hilarity. In this turn of the century, upstairs-downstairs class struggle, the house of Almaviva is pitted against its callous and philandering master who also has his sights set on the lovely bride. Based on the Beaumarchais play that fueled the French Revolution, The Marriage of Figaro is more than just your average comedy. It has been acclaimed as one of the greatest operas of all time thanks in great part to Mozart’s divine score perfectly wedded to DaPonte’s witty and timeless libretto.
Gabriel Preisser returns to the mainstage to sing the title role of Figaro joined by Tess Altiveros as Susanna, Brittany Renee Robinson as the Countess, and Torlef Borsting as the Count. Directed by Robert Neu and conducted by Nicolas Giusti, the production features musicians from the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra and members of the Opera Orlando Chorus and the Opera Orlando Youth Company. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
