Wanderlust Opera presents
THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO: ONE CRAZY DAY
Directed by Jacqueline Coats
Musical direction by Bruce Greenfield
Libretto by Georgia Jamieson Emms
From the team that brought you 2016's Cosi fan tutte comes one of the most beloved operas of all time: Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro.
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.
Wanderlust Opera is thrilled to bring this new “sweetened and condensed” adaptation to 4th Wall. Performed in English and featuring a cast of singers from New Zealand Opera 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”.
