Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte
Sung in Italian with English supertitles
The passions and perils of love and marriage collide in one
uproarious day as Figaro struggles to get his bride, Susanna, to the
altar unscathed. Identities are concealed, manners upended, plots foiled
… all to the glorious music of Mozart’s masterpiece.
Evan Hughes, Nicole Heaston, David Pershall and Emily Fons make their BLO debuts, and Emily Birsan, who wowed audiences as Musetta in 2015’s La Bohème, is the bride-to-be, Susanna. The Marriage of Figaro reunites key members of BLO’s La Bohème creative team, with Rosetta Cucchi directing, BLO Artistic Advisor John Conklin set designing, and David Angus conducting.
