Get The Marriage of Figaro tickets at the London Coliseum.

Experience one of the greatest operas ever written, The Marriage of Figaro at the London Coliseum.

Mozart’s musical masterpiece is a whirlwind comedy of betrothal, betrayal and deliciously bad behaviour.

Set on a single day, it packs in a dazzling procession of madcap comic schemes and setbacks, all of which are punctuated by some of the most sublime music ever written. This is Mozart at the height of his powers.

One of the most gifted directors of his generation, Joe Hill-Gibbins brings an exciting new energy to this classic opera. It’s a bold, contemporary take that accentuates Mozart’s overtures and arias with a pared back staging, which brings out the production’s wit and comedic characters.

Former ENO Harewood Artist, David Ireland sings the title role. Internationally renowned British soprano and another former ENO Harewood Artist, Mary Bevan is Susannah, his fiancée. The production is conducted by Ainārs Rubiķis, following his many successes as Music Director with the Komische Oper, Berlin.

The Marriage of Figaro runs from 5 – 22 February 2025 at the London Coliseum. Book tickets now.

What's the story of The Marriage of Figaro?

When the cheating Count Almaviva makes advances on Susanna, his servant’s wife-to-be, Figaro’s marriage threatens to end before it has started.

The household takes sides. 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, deception, disguise and double cross are the result, as the warring factions make Figaro’s love-life a comic battleground.
