NEXT UP ON OPERA IS ON STREAMING
THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO
STREAMING october 24 at 10am Pacific
This Weekend, You’re Invited — to Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro
A wedding is a time of romance. Of solemn vows. Of family reunions. And, of course, of going absolutely bonkers.
Strap yourself in for the wildest wedding of the season as Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro streams for free this weekend on our website. Meet Figaro, faithful valet to a very, very unfaithful man — as Figaro is about to find out when he discovers his employer is planning to bed his fiancée right on his wedding night!
As if things couldn’t get any worse, in comes a lawyer — with claims that Figaro is already betrothed. With two fiancées and a lecherous boss to contend with, how will the wily Figaro weasel his way to wedded bliss?
Patrick Summers conducts a glittering cast, including Philippe Sly as the quick-witted Figaro, Lisette Oropesa as his fiancée Susanna, Nadine Sierra as the jilted Countess Almaviva, and Luca Pisaroni as the lustful Count Almaviva, in a production the San Francisco Chronicle describes as calls “a perfect union” of theatrics and music.
Don’t miss one of the funniest romantic comedies of all time: Streaming starts this Saturday, October 24, at 10am Pacific, but the wedding party ends midnight the next day. Tune in!
Run time: 2 hours and 53 minutes
