Mozart’s masterpiece reveals much about the human condition through consummate wit, grace and joyous musical invention.
ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins conducts this second revival of Director Fiona Shaw’s critically acclaimed production.
The Marriage of Figaro will run from 29 March 2018 until 14 April 2018 at the London Coliseum.
As the day of Figaro and Susanna’s wedding arrives, it becomes clear that their master, Count Almaviva, is hell-bent on seducing Susanna before the ceremony can take place. Susanna and Figaro conspire with the forsaken Countess to outwit her husband and teach him a lesson in fidelity. But when the teenage Cherubino involves himself in their plans, relationships become severely strained through a series of ever-more confusing twists and turns.
The cast includes Lucy Crowe, as the despondent Countess, and bass-baritone Ashley Riches, as the philandering Count. ENO Harewood Artist Rhian Lois is the ever-resourceful Susanna, alongside Dutch baritone Thomas Oliemans as Figaro, while Harewood Artist Katie Coventry sings her first Cherubino.
Conducted by Hilary Griffiths, directed by Jonathan Miller, revival director Peter Relton, with design by Tanya McCallin, lighting design by Tom Mannings and translation by Amanda Holden and Anthony Holden.
