The Marriage of Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (2019)
This is one of Mozart's most provocative works, which was banned in Vienna following the outrage of the Viennese nobility. Its wit, well depicted characters, as well as the high standards of its libretto and music make it a masterpiece of universal opera.
Figaro, Count Almaviva's friend and loyal servant, is getting married. His beloved is Susanne, whom the count has also set his sights on. The servants and the countess come up with a plan to teach a lesson to the unfaithful count, who in the finale finds himself on a secret garden rendezvous with his own wife dressed in Susanne's clothes.
