The Marriage of Figaro description

Mozart’s masterpiece reveals much about the human condition through consummate wit, grace and joyous musical invention. ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins conducts this second revival of Director Fiona Shaw’s critically acclaimed production.

As the day of Figaro and Susanna’s wedding arrives, it becomes clear that their master, Count Almaviva, is hell-bent on seducing 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 teenage Cherubino involves himself in their plans, relationships become severely strained through a series of ever-more confusing twists and turns.

The cast includes Lucy Crowe, as the despondent Countess, and bass-baritone Ashley Riches, as the philandering Count. ENO Harewood Artist Rhian Lois is the ever-resourceful Susanna, alongside Dutch baritone Thomas Oliemans as Figaro, while Harewood Artist Katie Coventry sings her first Cherubino.
