The Big Deal: Fort Worth Opera 'The Marriage of Figaro' on June 1

by Sonya Jones 9 May 2012 8:00 AM

Presented by the Fort Worth Opera, Mozart’s classic The Marriage of Figaro makes it’s way to Bass Performance Hall.

After three years of marriage, Count Almaviva is just plain bored. So he revives an age-old tradition that will give him first dibs on his wife’s servant girl on her wedding night. Never mind that the lovely bride-to-be, Susanna, is engaged to his faithful servant, Figaro—of Barber of Seville fame—who, incidentally, helped Almaviva win the Countess’ hand! Pride comes before a fall…and Figaro, Susanna, and the Countess are ready and willing to give the Count a nudge.
