Buy Tickets The Marriage of Figaro

Performed by Swansea City Opera

There will be a pre-performance talk about the opera and production at 6.15pm, given by the Artistic Director of Swansea City Opera, Brendan Wheatley

The Marriage of Figaro is a wonderful opera, Mozart's most famous, and the music is incredible. Swansea City Opera are known throughout the UK for their sparkling performances of comic opera and their Figaro will be no exception.
Beautifully staged in English with elegant 18th century costumes, and performed by some of the finest singers and orchestral players in the country, Figaro will give you an enchanting and hilarious evening’s entertainment - a feast for the eyes and ears.
Taking place after the events in The Barber of Seville, the opera recounts a single day in the palace of the Count Almaviva in Spain. The Count has designs on one of his maids, Susanna, who is going to be married to Figaro, the Count’s valet. Figaro, Susanna, and the Countess conspire to embarrass the Count and expose his infidelity. At night, all find themselves on the palace grounds, where a comic series of cases of mistaken identity results in... well you must come and find out.

Duration; 2 hours 50 minutes including a 20 minute interval.

“We knew what we were in for, right from the very first scampering notes of that famous overture – away they went, at breakneck speed: yes, this was going to be a fast-moving, light-footed and light-hearted Figaro”

“The singers were fantastic and also acted well. The orchestra was also excellent.”

“We enjoyed this performance as it was in English so all the nuances of the plot can be followed. Also the company appeared to enjoy doing it and that came across”
