Richard Egarr will be conducting the Academy of Ancient Music in a performance of Mozart’s comedy opera Le Nozze di Figaro.
Figaro loves Susanna, and the Countess loves the Count. But the Count loves the chase. Can Figaro get Susanna down the aisle before everything 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 Academy of Ancient Music dates all the way back to 1726 and uses period instruments to play 18th and 19th-century music from the baroque and classical eras.
