The Marriage of Figaro (Le nozze di Figaro) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Venue: Fairchild Theatre, MSU Auditorium

Often described as “the perfect opera,” this combination of Mozart’s sublime music and Lorenzo daPonte’s sparkling adaptation of the Beaumarchais play has delighted audiences for more than 230 years. This enduring tale of class differences and privilege is particularly relevant today in the era of the “one percent.”
Conductor: Daniel Beckwith
Director: Melanie Helton
