A comic opera that has withstood the test of time
The Marriage of Figaro (Le nozze di Figaro) was composed by Mozart in 1786 and is one of his most popular operas. It is a comic opera (opera buffa), with the libretto based one of Pierre Beaumarchais’ comedy plays. The story is about two servants, Susanna and Figaro, who wish to marry. Their employer, the womaniser Count Almaviva, attempts to thwart the wedding and seduce Susanna. However, the servants and the neglected Countess join together to teach the Count a lesson in the most spectacular fashion. The 2019 production was of a wonderful standard, with exceptional singing and acting from the likes of Joélle Harvey as Susanna, Simon Keenlyside as the Count, and Christian Gerhaher as Figaro. The spectacular performances were backed up by the world-class orchestra of the Royal Opera House, who also accompany ballets such as Swan Lake London.

One of the best productions of The Marriage of Figaro in recent memory
The Marriage of Figaro is one of the most widely performed operas in the world and The Royal Opera House is certainly no stranger to it. Since the mid-20th century, over 350 performances across several different productions have taken place here. One of the more modern productions, directed by the acclaimed David McVicar, arrived here in 2006 and has been revived several times. The 2019 revival was particularly notable for being the first time a man (countertenor Justin Kim) was cast for the role of Cherubino, a character who is traditionally portrayed by a female soprano. The orchestra was conducted by Sir John Eliot Gardiner, who received a knighthood from the Queen and has won many awards, including a Grammy. An opera full of such beautiful arias and spectacular ensembles certainly deserves an equally magnificent venue, and The Royal Opera House never disappoints.
