What would you do if your boss wanted to sleep with your girlfriend?
Figaro's adventures continue in Seville, working for the Count as his major-domo. Figaro has fallen in love and is about to get married to Susanna, but the Count has a wandering eye and plans to reinstate an old law, which would allow him to enjoy a passionate night with Figaro's bride-to-be. A madcap cast of characters are intent on interfering with Figaro and Susanna's plans, leading to a whirlwind of tricks and disguises to teach the Count a lesson and save the wedding.
"In my opinion, each number in Figaro is a miracle: it is totally beyond me how anyone could create anything so perfect; nothing like it was ever done again..."
- Johannes Brahms
