About

The greatest comic opera is brought to life by an exciting cast with Antonio Pappano at the helm.

From the headlong rush of the overture, Mozart’s timeless comedy is a breathless journey through one very eventful day in the life of an 1830s château. Figaro and his bride Susanna conspire to foil the unwanted advances of Count Almaviva, while the Countess has her heart stolen by a cross-dressing pageboy. Mozart’s music unfolds with beautiful solos and ensembles to amplify the deep emotions behind the seemingly farcical surface.

Music Director of The Royal Opera Antonio Pappano brings his specialist perspective to Mozart’s effervescent score. A young and predominantly Italian cast, including Ricardo Fassi, Giulia Semenzato and Germán E. Alcántara, perform this revival of David McVicar’s sumptuous and hugely popular period staging.

“… an exceptional, exhilarating revival…” – The Independent ★★★★★)

“… a fizzy, funny, hugely accomplished revival…” – The Daily Telegraph ★★★★

“An unexpectedly fresh revival of one of the greatest operas… Thanks to a brilliant young cast, a great conductor and a terrific performance from the orchestra, this was a magnificent evening at the opera, pure joy from start to finish.” – The Daily Express ★★★★
