All You Need Is Love
Few operas are as delightful as Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro
, considered by many to be the most perfect opera ever written. Picking up where The Barber of Seville
left off, it’s now several years later and the bloom is off the rose. Count Almaviva has developed a wandering eye and has set his sights on Figaro’s bride-to-be, Susannah, neglecting his own wife. What follows is a rousing and poignant comedy of misplaced identities, misbegotten plans and general misbehaving. All ends well as love is restored, families are reunited and Figaro finally gets his bride.
The Marriage of Figaro is a new co-production with Opera Philadelphia and San Diego Opera and
will premier at Lyric Opera of Kansas City.
Sung in Italian with English subtitles. Suitable for children who have had their first crush.
