Britain’s leading outdoor touring company, Opera Brava, present The Marriage of Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, performed with a chamber ensemble against the magical backdrop of the Elizabethan Mansion House.
One wedding and a whole lot of great singing!
It has all the ingredients of a classic piece of 18th century literature – passion, lust, betrayal, deception and ultimate forgiveness.
Yet the action takes place in just 24 hours and is liberally sprinkled with sparkling, farcical humour.

With a professional cast of top-class performers, lavish costumes and period sets, the production promises first-rate quality at prices that are a fraction of Covent Garden
