The Marriage of Figaro | Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Love is a battlefield.

Mozart’s infectious score brings wit, drama, and humanity to this comedy of errors widely considered the perfect opera. Will Figaro and his charming fiancée make it to the altar as they attempt to fend off the philandering, arrogant Count Almaviva?

Preliminary runtime of 3 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission.

Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.
M-F, 10am-5pm
