The Marriage of Figaro Tickets

London Coliseum

ENO and Oper Wuppertal present a deliciously comical and high-spirited revival of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro. Directed by the gifted Joe Hill-Gibbins and starring an exciting line-up of operatic talent, the piece runs at the London Coliseum in spring.

ENO presents Mozart's whirlwind romp The Marriage of Figaro in collaboration with Oper Wuppertal. Catch this complex and thrilling revival at the London Coliseum from 14 March 2020.

Le Nozze di Figaro was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1786 and comprises an Italian libretto by Lorenza Da Ponte. It is based on La Folle Journée, ou le Mariage de Figaro, a stage comedy by Pierre Beaumarchais. A cornerstone of history's operatic works, it continues to be performed throughout the world.

The story is a continuation of The Barber of Seville, revisited several years later. Figaro works as Count Almaviva's head of staff. He is due to be married to the lovely Susanna, the Countess' maid. The philandering Count is intent on bedding Susanna before she is wed, in what he believes to be his right as her master, despite her rejection of him. Figaro, Susanna and the Countess conspire to outwit him, and so ensues a comedy of mistaken identities, moral lessons and general mayhem.

ENO Harewood Artist Božidar Smiljanić stars as Figaro, making his role debut. Opposite him is Louise Alder in the part of Susanna. Johnathan McCullough plays Count Almaviva, while Sophie Bevan fulfils the role of Countess Almaviva.

The gifted Joe Hill-Gibbins makes his ENO main stage debut as director, alongside conductor Kevin John Edusei. James Henshaw conducts a select few performances. Set design comes from Johannes Schultz, costume design is by Astria Klein and lighting design is courtesy of Bernd Velder. The piece features choreography by Jenny Ogilvie.

A smart, twisting story underlaid with a glorious score, The Marriage of Figaro is a staple for opera lovers everywhere. Catch Hill-Gibbins' gorgeous revival at the London Coliseum from 14 March 2020.
