The Marriage of Figaro, March 2009


The Marriage of Figaro—March 14, 15, 20, 21, and 22, 2009

The Marriage of Figaro is considered Mozart’s greatest social commentary.  It is a combination of comedy and pathos.  Figaro and Susanna joyfully await their coming wedding but it is clouded by the marital woes of their employers, the Count and Countess.  The Count seems to have lost interest in Rosina (the same Count and Rosina from the Barber of Seville).  He now covets Susanna, Rosina’s maid servant.  The two women devise a plan with the help of Cherubino that will teach the Count a lesion he will never forget.  Magnificent arias, duets, and ensembles abound that reflect deception, anger, discord, and finally, repentance, and reconciliation.
