The Marriage of Figaro

figaro1

Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-91) 
Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte (1749-1838)

A cornerstone of the operatic repertoire,The Marriage of Figaro is one of the most famous operas ever written. A boisterous romantic comedy, the story intertwines well-known melodies with a wildly entertaining parade of identities mistaken, ruses gone awry, tables turned, and no end of surprises.

Mozart’s brilliant comic opera, sung in English, covers one “crazy day” in a nobleman’s court. Colorful sets and rich costumes showcase a cast of nationally known opera stars and full orchestra. Launching its tenth season, Rimrock Opera’s production is set for Saturday, September 20, at 7:30 and Sunday, September 21, at 3:00 PM at the Alberta Bair Theater.
