Figaro! Figaro! Figaro! PART TWO
Love, and a little sense of humor, conquers all in the winter production of The Marriage of Figaro, the second in the three-part trilogy based on Pierre Beaumarchais’ Figaro plays. Set three years after The Barber of Seville, the Count’s valet, Figaro, is set to marry Susanna, the Countess’ chambermaid. Tossed into the tangled web of lust, love, and jealousy, this topsy-turvy day is rife with intrigue and disguise. Oh, the many lengths one will go for love! Rock Hill-native Kristopher Irmiter (New York City Opera) returns to the Opera Carolina stage as the loveable Figaro alongside Ailyn Pérez (Rigoletto) and Anne-Carolyn Bird (Metropolitan Opera). Sung in Italian with projected English Titles. March 7, 8, 12 & 14, 2009 Belk Theater, Charlotte, NC
