Love, and a little sense of humor, conquers all. This particular journey takes place three years after The Barber of Seville, recounting a single day in the palace of Count Almaviva. In fact, it is the very day the Count's valet, Figaro, the Barber, is to marry the lovely Susanna, the Countess' chambermaid. However, it seems Figaro isn't the only one with an unbridled passion for the bride-to-be. And so the day unfolds... Originally banned by Louis XVI for its satirical portrayal of aristocracy, this sequel to The Barber of Seville quickly became Mozart's most acclaimed opera.
