Mozart’s classic opera The Marriage of Figaro involves a whole lot of hijinks.

WOLFGANG Amadeus Mozart’s opera The Marriage of Figaro, a new production from Opera Australia, follows the adventures of a household over one crazy day.

Masters are lusting after their servants, servants are outwitting their masters – Figaro is the Downton Abbey of opera but a lot more fun.

Award-winning creative duo Michael Gow and Robert Kemp have created a brand new production featuring stunning period costumes and a clever set.

A talented chamber orchestra and a chorus of local children from Halls Head College and South Halls Head Primary School will accompany some of Opera Australia’s finest singers performing Mozart’s magical music.

In a wealthy household in Seville, Figaro is marrying Susanna, but the count wants to seduce her first.

Marcellina wants Figaro and the Countess just wants her husband back.

But Susanna is smarter than all of them.

After a crazy day of disguise and duplicity, will she find her happily ever after?
