Cunning, clever, and big-hearted, Figaro is precisely the sort of person you want as a friend. His quick thinking proves invaluable in helping a young woman escape from the grasp of her guardian and into the arms of a noble suitor.
Spanish director Emilio Sagi’s buoyant and delightfully funny staging returns by popular demand. The cast stars the irresistible Daniela Mack, the ardent René Barbera and the charismatic Lucas Meachem in the title role. With its unfailingly charming and inventive score, this hilarious combination of vocal and visual fireworks is sure to enchant.
