Marriage of Figaro is an opera of triangles of amore. Figaro is set to marry the beautiful Susanna. Susanna is constantly repelling the repeated advances of the Count. A creditor of Figaro, Marcellina, plans to advert Figaro’s nuptials and allow him to settle his debt by marrying her. Cherubino, the page, is lovesick over the Countess. And the Countess seeks to re-attract the attentions of her husband. It is not difficult to imagine the confusion and hilarity that ensues. Through an elaborate domino effect of blunders, follies, and mistaken identities that are sure to entertain, all parties discover the identity of their rightful partner, repentance and forgiveness abounds, and all rejoice in a rightful happily ever after.
