The Marriage of Figaro

by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Thu 8th - Sat 10th March 2007 at 7.00pm - Main House
(Matinee 10th at 1.00pm)

Birmingham Conservatoire’s exciting production of Beaumarchais’ sequel to The Barber of Seville

The Count has married Rosine but their marriage has gone sour because of his philandering. Figaro has quit barbering and is now the Count's major-domo. He is engaged to Suzanne, who is Countess Rosine's maid -- and the Count's intended conquest. Old Bartholo is back to seek revenge on Figaro for taking Rosine away from him, with the help of the slimy music-master, Don Bazile.

Adding to the fun are an amorous teenager, a scheming old maid, a drunken gardener, and a silly young girl. Much happens on a single "folle journée" - a crazy day.

Please note the early start times.

Tickets £12 (Concessions £9.00, UCE Students £3.50)
