    Once charming, Count Almaviva has become a scheming bully who spends his days pestering the serving girls. Figaro, his head of staff, is engaged to Susanna, but Almaviva has a particular soft spot for her and is doing everything he can to delay their wedding. Figaro, Susanna and Rosina, the Count’s disillusioned wife, conspire to expose his schemes but then Figaro’s old foe Dr Bartolo turns up. And he has a revelation of his own to tell…

    Scottish Opera’s five-star production of Mozart’s irresistible masterpiece is directed by the great British baritone, Sir Thomas Allen, and is full of humour, subtlety and wit. Mozart’s bubbling, energetic score shows him at his theatrical best – with a true genius for getting to the heart of the drama, and each character. The gorgeous period designs provide the backdrop for a comedy of social revolution and change that is as relevant today as ever.

    Timothy Burke (01 & 03 Nov) and Tobias Ringborg (Sat 05 Nov) conduct an exciting cast including former Jette Parker Young Artists Samuel Dale Johnson and Anna Devin (Don Giovanni 2013). Former Scottish Opera Emerging Artist Ben McAtee is Figaro.
