Presenting a dinner theatre at the British Club. Enjoy Mozart’s comic opera while enjoying a 3 course buffet dinner.
The Essential Marriage of Figaro tells the core plot of Mozart’s wonderful opera “The Marriage of Figaro” and uses Mozart’s original, beautiful and tuneful, score.
“The Marriage of Figaro” continues the plot of “The Barber of Seville” several years later, and recounts a single “day of madness” in the palace of Count Almaviva near Seville, Spain. Rosina is now the Countess. The Count Almaviva is a bullying, skirt-chasing baritone. Having gratefully given Figaro a job as head of his servant-staff, he is now persistently trying to exercise his droit du seigneur – his right to bed a servant girl on her wedding night – with Figaro’s bride-to-be, Susanna, who is the Countess’s maid. He keeps finding excuses to delay the civil part of the wedding of his two servants, which is arranged for this very day.
Figaro, Susanna, and the Countess conspire to embarrass the Count and expose his scheming. Through Figaro’s and Susanna’s clever manipulations, the Count’s love for his Countess is finally restored. All is forgiven.
Directed by Ian Robinson; Produced by Don Harrelson; Musical director Tony Newman; Assistant Musical Director Simon Green.
