Western’s Opera program kicks off 2019 with one of the most beloved and performed of all Mozart operas – The Marriage of Figaro. The comic opera tells the story of servants Figaro and Susanna and how they succeed in getting married, foiling the efforts of their philandering employer and teaching him a lesson in fidelity.
