Lent Week 5
Below-stairs in the Almaviva household, Figaro and Susanna are blissfully happy: it's finally their wedding day. But even today there is nowhere to hide from the ringing of the servant's bell - and this time the Count is ringing for Susanna. The Countess is abandoned to her secluded garret, as the Count prowls the servants quarters, determined to add Susanna's name to the others in his little black book. Constantly aware of every creaking door, every watchful eye, Figaro and Susanna know they must rely on their wits, but can they pull off their wedding? And will they live happily ever after?
Cambridge University Opera Society are delighted to present Mozart's Marriage of Figaro. Set in the back passages of 18th century England and starring some of Cambridge's finest singers, this new production celebrates both the darkness and the hilarity of this much-loved comic opera.
