Krannert Center Events: April 2022: The Marriage of Figaro

Event Details

Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte

Andrew Megill, conductor
Nathan Gunn, stage director

Mozart’s beloved comic opera takes place over just one day, but the journey is filled with twists, turns, and plenty of escapades! Written just before the French Revolution, The Marriage of Figaro explores class relationships, the roles of wealth, power, and common sense—and the miracle of forgiveness. The bumpy road to Figaro and Susanna’s wedding shines with “wit, humanity and astounding, glorious music” (The Guardian).

Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
