Season of Comedy

This Spring, English Touring Opera present three of the wittiest works of the repertoire, taken from the 18th, 19th, and 20th Centuries. These very different operas – all of them describing the events of one day - find comedy in stifling Sevillian manor houses, in enchanted woods, and in dusty bachelors' quarters.


The Marriage of Figaro – Mozart
An elegant, period costume production of one of the world's most popular operas, containing some of Mozart's most beautiful and familiar music.

The plot (based on Beaumarchais' controversial play) traces the intrigues of one day at the house of Count Almaviva. Figaro is to marry Susanna, (a maid, but also a 'favourite' of the Count - and opera's most charming heroine, here played by Eliana Praetorian and Claire Ormshaw), but he must overcome every obstacle put in his way by the Count and his cronies, before he can be united finally with his bride.
