Harvard College Opera, Harvard’s undergraduate opera company, is excited to bring to life this masterpiece of the opera buffa canon and pinnacle of Mozart’s musical genius. With more salon drama than a whole season of Downton Abbey, this comedy takes place in one uproarious day as the servant Figaro attempts to wed his beloved Susanna, to the chagrin of the scheming Count Almaviva. Mistaken identities, disregarded morals, and failed plots drive this upstairs/downstairs story about the intersection between love and class.
