Why watch The Marriage of Figaro?

  • Ainārs Rubiķis leads the orchestra, drawing on his experience as Music Director with the Komische Oper Berlin to deliver a powerful and nuanced performance of Mozart's score.

Buckle up for a hilarious operatic adventure with The Marriage of Figaro. This timeless masterpiece by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, having charmed audiences for centuries. You might even recognize some of the tunes from movies like The King's Speech and The Shawshank Redemption. David Ireland, a rising star and former ENO Harewood Artist, takes on the title role of Figaro. Opposite him is the internationally renowned British soprano Mary Bevan, another ENO Harewood Artist, who brings Susanna to life. Award-winning director Joe Hill-Gibbins (A View from the Bridge) uses pared-back staging to highlight the wit and comedic timing of Mozart's music and the characters themselves.
