The London Coliseum is putting on a production of Mozart's glorious comedy, The Marriage of Figaro.
Figaro loves Susanna. The Countess loves the Count. And the Count loves the chase. Can Figaro get Susanna down the aisle before it all falls apart?
The opera follows Figaro's attempts to protect his wife-to-be from the lusty looks of Count Almaviva before the ceremony can take place... but when the teenage Cherubino gets involved his machinations take on ever-more confusing twists and turns, straining all the relationships that mean the most to him.
The opera covers all shades of human emotion: playfulness, heartfelt despair, loving affection and ultimately a plea for forgiveness.
