Official Event Listing

Opera buffa in four acts (1786)

It’s Figaro’s wedding, and you’re invited to join the Almaviva household for an uproarious day of revelation and scandal.

David McVicar returns to direct his glorious 2006 production of Mozart’s comic opera about a couple trying to thwart a certain Count's attempts to seduce the bride-to-be. Packed with plot twists, forbidden desires and unforgettable melodies, combining laugh-out-loud comedy with moments of breathtaking beauty, The Marriage of Figaro shines with humanity and wit, making it an enduring classic.

Ying Fang makes her long-anticipated Royal Opera debut as Susanna, alongside former Jette Parker Artist Jacquelyn Stucker as the Countess. Conductor Julia Jones leads a largely international cast, including Luca Micheletti as Figaro, Huw Montague Rendall as Count Almaviva, with Ginger Costa-Jackson also making her Royal Opera debut as Cherubino. 

The beloved score is instantly recognisable, from Figaro's ironic farewell to Cherubino in 'Non più andrai' (You shall go no more), to Cherubino’s lovelorn aria to the Countess, ‘Voi che sapete’ (You who know what love is). Julia Jones conducts.
