The Marriage of Figaro
When: 7:30 pm Saturday, November 12th
Where: Keller Auditorium
Address: 222 Southwest Clay Street, Portland, OR 97201
The infamous barber of Seville has finally found himself a bride!
There’s just one little problem. Seems the Count has his eyes on her as well. And so Figaro vows that if the Count wants to “dance,” it will be he—Figaro—who plays the tune.
And what a tune it is!
Mozart takes us on a whirlwind ride—a madcap frenzy of disguises, mistaken identities and general mayhem—catapulting us to one of the most touching conclusions ever, a joyous finale that celebrates our amazing capacity for tenderness, trust and forgiveness.
