The Marriage of Figaro

This abridged version of Mozart’s famous opera is both amusing and accessible. The story takes place on the wedding day of Figaro and Susanna, Count Almaviva’s servants. Figaro is surprised to hear Susanna’s confession: she is being pursued by the Count! Figaro gets angry, and vows to foil the Count’s intentions with the help of Susanna and the Countess. This one-hour show, sung in Italian with narration and story in English, will definitely engage your students!
