Mozart’s comic opera, Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro), is a farcical jaunt through a not-so-typical day in the Almaviva household. The servant couple, Figaro and Susanna, are to be married later in the evening; while the Count (who has amorous designs on the bride) attempts to revive the droit du seigneur allowing him intimate time with Susanna on the wedding night. The Boulder Opera presents a fully-staged production at the open-air The Spark theater on March 7, 13 & 14.
Each show is limited to 55 people. These performances will be semi outdoor, and while they will have heating lamps, it is recommended you dress warm. Face covering and social distancing are required at all times.
In this witty opera, Figaro and Susanna, together with the rejected Countess and the occasionally helpful, often irritating page boy, Cherubino, contrive an elaborate plot to outwit him.
Much mayhem ensues, someone jumps out of a window, clothes are exchanged, a second wedding occurs, and the Count receives a lesson in fidelity he’ll never forget.
