Description

The Marriage of Figaro

Sung in English

Performed with a chamber orchestra. Directed and Adapted by Michael Gow

Come join the Katherine community to sit under the stars on a dry season night and watch opera - it's divine.


Mozart's brilliant opera The Marriage of Figaro follows the adventures of a household over one crazy day. Masters are lusting over their servants, servants are outwitting their masters — Figaro is the Downton Abbey of opera, but a whole lot more fun!

Award-winning creative duo Michael Gow and Robert Kemp have created a brand new production, featuring stunning period costumes and a clever set. A talented chamber orchestra and chorus of local children will accompany some of Opera Australia's finest singers performing Mozart’s beautiful music.

In a wealthy household in Seville, Figaro is marrying Susanna, but the Count wants to seduce her first. Marcellina wants Figaro and the Countess just wants her husband back. But Susanna is smarter than all of them. After a crazy day of disguise and duplicity, will she get her happily ever after?

The Marriage of Figaro is a delightful night out, suitable for the whole family.

Young people from the Katherine youth choir, Cantarbillay, will sing and perform on stage with the cast of Opera Australia in some scenes.


Synopsis

It's a big day on the estate of Count Almaviva, just outside Seville. The Count's servant Figaro and the Countess' maid Susanna are to be married. But not everyone is happy about the wedding. The Count has had his eye on Susanna for some time. The housekeeper Marcellina finds herself strongly attracted to Figaro and her former flame, Dr Bartolo, who was once in love with Susanna and would prefer the wedding not to happen. Marcellina has lent Figaro money and the contract states if he doesn't repay the loan he has to marry Marcellina.
