Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
Opera buffa in four acts.

Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte. English translation by Ruth and Thomas Martin.
Director - Alex Galvin
Producer - Emma Beale
General Music Director - Simon Romanos

After their critically acclaimed debut production of “Don Giovanni” in 2016, Eternity Opera is returning with Mozart’s irresistible comic masterpiece.

It’s Figaro’s wedding day and he is shocked to learn that his master, the Count, is out to bed his bride-to-be, Susanna. The Countess is also heartbroken by her husband’s faithlessness – but she must also contend with the adolescent desires of the page, Cherubino.

The bubbling, energetic score sees Mozart at his theatrical best, with gorgeous period costumes and designs.

Performed in English by a lineup of top Wellington singers, this will again be directed by Alex Galvin and conducted by Simon Romanos, with support from the Eternity Chamber Orchestra, led by former NZ String Quartet violinist Doug Beilman.
