Mozart’s joyous farce of mistaken identity, misunderstanding and comic twists is bursting at the seams with invention and wit in this hit production by Jo Davies (Kiss Me, Kate). It’s Figaro’s wedding day, and his master, Count Almaviva, plans to seduce the bride-to-be. Meanwhile, the heartbroken Countess is the subject of the teenage pageboy Cherubino’s advances. Mozart’s sublime music bubbles along, conveying all the delight and pain of love and the agony and ecstasy of desire.

Antony Hermus (Tosca) returns to conduct a cast including Phillip Rhodes as Figaro, Fflur Wyn as Susanna, Quirijn de Lang as Count Almaviva and Máire Flavin as the Countess.
