The Marriage of Figaro opera plot summary

This is a comedy that takes place all in one hectic day and is full of twists and turns and mistaken identities; and of course, this is the day of Figaro and Susanna’s wedding. Their philandering master, Count Almaviva, is resolute in bedding Susanna before she is married. Along with the rejected Countess, Figaro and Susanna conspire together to outwit him. Chaos is created and havoc ensues, which leads to a lesson in marital fidelity for the Count, which he’ll never forget.

ENO Presents Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro

The Marriage of Figaro is consistently amongst the top ten most frequently performed operas in the Operabase. It was composed by one of the most reputable in the opera field, Wolfgang Mozart, having displayed complete mastery across three operatic genres: opera seria, opera buffa and Singspiel. Ahead of his time, Mozart’s psychologically complex story, from the first notes of the Overture, show the women to be, in fact, wiser, sharper and more civilised than the men. The libretto was written by Lorenzo Da Ponte and based on a stage comedy by Pierre Beaumarchais.

The Marriage of Figaro cast and creatives

Making his role debut as Figaro is ENO Harewood Artist Božidar Smiljanić. Joining the cast are sopranos Louise Adler (Eurydice in Orpheus) and Sophie Bevan (Solomon’s Queen/First Harlot in Solomon). Also joining them are company favourites Andrew Shore (Baron Zeta in The Merry Widow) and Susan Bickley (Herodias in Salome).

Making his main stage debut at ENO is director Joe Hill-Gibbins, widely considered one of the most gifted of his generation, alongside conductor Kevin John Edusei.

This thrilling opera is so well renowned for a reason, as is its legendary composer, and with a limited season, tickets are bound to be as sought after as Susanna is by the Count. Mozart’s comedy is coming to the West End's London Coliseum from 14 March to 18 April 2020. Book now and don’t miss out on The Marriage of Figaro tickets!

Don't forget to see what else will be on for the new, highly-anticipated ENO season here.

Beautiful theatre, thoroughly enjoyed the performance. I will definitely be visiting again in the not too distant future!

Bryan17th April

mediocre overall experience. Nice sound i have to say and amazing actors/singers. First part sublime, such amazing songs and acts. Second part we were pushed to a "cave", just because we went to the bathroom on the club next-door as the Coliseum as packed of people at break time, Came back and not only the doors were shut, also they did not let us take our seat on the last row of the seats, as we could annoy someone, so they took us into a basement next to the restaurant where there was no seats, only a few folding chairs and a TV, not a screen, a TV! So please if ever anyone will leave the Coliseum to use the bathroom, make sure you run, otherwise you will be locked outside! Give a 2 out of 5 because obviously the best part of the show we couldn't really watch/listen properly. But i still recommend.

It was an amazing, magical and dream like performance.

Janina Zaikauskaite15th April

Sumptuously! The staging is amazing, the actors play at the height. Thanks !!!!

Colin13th April

I think it disgraceful that you charge £125 for seats A37 &A38 that are so uncomfortable. For your customers sake please replace the seat which is soft,made up of ridges,old and unpleasant to sit on for 3 hours. NOT good at all. Please go and sit on them in temperatures of 26C+. When you have a full house. Will the manager please start managing Totally ruined a special birthday treat.

John Williams13th April

One of the best productions of The Marriage of Figaro that OI have ever seen

Michael Spruzs11th April

Very good, excellent set, brilliant soprano. Music could be louder! (no expert). Soprano loud clear compared with other singers and the audience seemed to appreciate her the most. Did sit with the gods!

Christina Paumgarten8th April

it was very enjoyable, and I am picky!

SC Earley7th April

Absolutely fantastic. The countess and Cherubino were exceptional.

Dahlia Renaud7th April

Great performance and great production.

Christopher Jardine5th April

Excellent performance of Marriage of Figaro. The singing was truly amazing especially from the countess performed by Lucy Crowe. Her voice was so pure and powerful, and all the cast sang beautifully. The stage set was very innovative and after you got used to the open structure, your imagination took over to tell the story. All in all a very entertaining and wonderful night at the opera!
