Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte
Mozart’s beloved Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro), Mozart’s comedic masterpiece follows the story of Figaro, Count Almaviva’s man servant, and his plans to marry his love, Susanna. The plot twists humorously as Count Almaviva meddles with Figaro’s plans, spurring the Countess to plan revenge against her philandering husband. A series of comedic mix ups and mistaken identities ensue before all lessons are learned and happiness is restored.
The cast features several CLO favorites including baritone Luke Scott as the resourceful Figaro and soprano Jurate Svedaite as the agrieved Countess, as well as talented newcomers, including soprano Amanda Kohl as Susannah, baritone Justin Ryan as the Count and Polish soprano, Joanna Dubiela as the girl-crazy Cherubino.
