love conquers all. especially reason.
Figaro and Susanna’s wedding is jeopardized by the wandering eye of the Count, their employer. Intrigue and mistaken identities ensnare everyone in a web of erotic passions as a sparkling cast guides us through this magnificent, witty farce. Set to music of luminous beauty, Figaro is a testament to Mozart’s genius. Claus Guth’s production is inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s films and the plays of Ibsen and Strindberg. COC Music Director Johannes Debus conducts.
With the COC Orchestra and Chorus
Production originally from the Salzburg Festival
