The Marriage of Figaro


Theatre Season 2017

A new production from Opera Australia.

Mozart’s brilliant opera The Marriage of Figaro follows the adventures of a household over one crazy day. Masters are lusting over their servants, servants are outwitting their masters – Figaro is the Downton Abbey of opera – but a whole lot more fun!

Award winning creative team, Michael Gow and Robert Kemp have created a brand new production, featuring stunning period costumes and a clever set. A talented chamber orchestra and chorus of local children will accompany some of Opera Australia’s finest singers performing Mozart’s beautiful music.

In a wealthy household in Seville, Figaro is marrying Susanna, but the Count wants to seduce her first. Marcellina wants Figaro and the Countess just wants her husband back. But Susanna is smarter than all of them. After a crazy day of disguise and duplicity, will she get her happily ever after?

Find out when Mozart’s comic masterpiece comes to Townsville.

It’s a delightful night out at the theatre!

Sung in English, performed with chamber orchestra.
