Servants Figaro and Susanna are filled with excitement on their wedding day, but there’s a hitch: their employer, the Count Almaviva, has dishonourable intentions of his own towards the bride-to-be.
With more twists than a page boy’s stockings, the story of Mozart’s comic opera will surprise and delight you at every turn. Come for the music and stay for the cross-dressing hilarity, all unfolding over the course of one crazy, topsy-turvy day in the Almaviva household.
Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano conducts a truly international cast in David McVicar’s timeless production. Filmed in January 2022.
Doors open 30 minutes before the performance commences.
