Lyric Opera Lecture: "Marriage of Figuro"

Sunday, September 27, 2015 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Learn about the upcoming Lyric Opera, "Marriage of Figuro" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart from veteran Lyric Opera lecturer Carla Thorpe. In the opera, the resourceful Figaro gets ready to marry his lovely Susanna - and endeavors to get his fiancée to the altar with her virtue still intact! His boss, the Count, has designs on Susanna and sees no reason to let her escape his noble snare, even if it means breaking the heart of his own long-suffering bride. But there's rebellion in the air in a comedy that boasts more salon drama and backroom maneuverings than a whole season of "Downton Abbey."
