Figaro and Susanna want to marry — but their boss, the predatory Count, has other ideas! An 18th-century poster boy for the #MeToo movement, he’d like to reassert his feudal rights and have his way with Susanna whenever he wishes crushing his despairing wife’s heart as he contemplates a new conquest.
Will there be a wedding or a divorce?
Not only that: there are more domestic dramas here than at Downton Abbey, including a hormonally charged teenager causing havoc, and an older woman
who says she has the right to marry Figaro!
But fear not — because Figaro and the ladies are on the case. Plots are hatched, subterfuge is employed, mayhem and hilarity ensue, and real love triumphs in the end.
Matchless music, masterful characterizations, and seriousness behind the smiles make this one of the most brilliant and best-loved comedies of all time.
