Maryland Lyric Opera: Mozart's 'Le nozze di Figaro'

 —  —

The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, 8270 Alumni Dr, College Park, MD

Figaro and Susanna are getting married. But the Count, Figaro's “boss”, appears to be more interested in Susanna than in his Countess. Marcellina is after Figaro. Cherubino is in love with every woman he comes across. Unlikely alliances are formed, desire lurks behind every door, a dangerous game of intrigue begins. Who will marry whom? Whose love is real and whose is not? Will the men win or will the women outsmart them?

Premiered in 1786, “The Marriage of Figaro”, the first opera of the Mozart/da Ponte trilogy remains every bit as relevant in our time as it was in the eighteenth century. Maryland Lyric Opera brings you a new production of this incredible work directed by a legend of the opera world.
