One Crazy Day.

One of the most beloved operas of all time, Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro is set over the course of one crazy day in the household of Count Almaviva. Barber-turned-valet Figaro and his sassy fiancee, Susanna, join forces with the long-suffering Countess to outsmart their devious employer.

This new sweetened and condensed adaptation by writer/soprano Georgia Jamieson Emms is performed in English and features a cast of singers from New Zealand Opera. Directed by Jacqueline Coats, this Figaro is innovative, economical, definitely a bit cheeky, yet preserves all the best bits of Mozart's masterpiece. Critics have called it 'hilarious' and 'sparkling with wit and ingenuity'.
