“The Revolution already put into action…”
- Napolean Bonaparte
(regarding The Marriage of Figaro)
It’s Suzanna’s wedding day, but the Count wants something from his wife’s maid that she only wants to give her new husband - or does she? The Countess knows her secret, and together they plot to save each other…
Banned in its time for its shocking denunciation of aristocratic privilege, The Marriage of Figaro is infamous for helping to inspire the French Revolution. A contemporary adaptation keeps this whirlwind of lies, mistaken identities and shifting power-dynamics spinning in a production that will keep its characters guessing until the final revelations!
