The Synopsis

English Touring Opera presents an energetic new production of one of the world’s most beloved operas, Mozart’s classic comedy The Marriage of Figaro. During the course of one eventful day, Figaro and Susanna must overcome every obstacle put in their way by Count Almaviva and his cronies before they can finally be united as man and wife. Blanche McIntyre (Tosca, 2017) returns to direct this most warm-hearted of operas, equally acclaimed for its sublime music and huge sense of fun.

Featuring a first-class cast, including Ross Ramgobin (Patience, 2017) as Figaro, Rachel Redmond as Susanna, Nadine Benjamin as the Countess, Dawid Kimberg as the Count and includes many artists of black and minority ethnic origin.

Approx. running time: 2 hours 55 minutes (incl. interval)
