In this madcap tale of love, it’s hard to tell who’s pulling the strings. In a country estate outside Seville, the valet Figaro plans for his wedding to the maid Susanna. When he discovers that his employer, the philandering Count Almaviva, plans to seduce his bride, Figaro vows to outwit his master. Mistaken identities, lust and infidelity each play a role in determining whether love conquers all – or leaves everyone hanging by a thread.
In this Arizona Opera production, Mozart’s comic opera comes to life with beautiful, intricate sets that conjure up 18th century Spanish villas. Canadian baritone Daniel Okulitch, in his signature role as Figaro, is the perfect foil for Marian Pop, whose exceptional stage talents add verve to the role of the Count. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
