Le nozze di figaro

W. A. Mozart

SYNOPSIS

Almaviva (il Conte) is having the day of all days. Suddenly made the head of his Scottish-Italian crime family, he is trying to keep control of his drugs and prostitution empire. His fixer and hit-man Figaro is marrying his most popular club escort and lap-dancer Susanna, the object of il Conte's lust.

 

He attempts to foil the marriage by scheming with the club drag-queen, and Il Conte's biggest fan, Basilio, and ageing brothel madame Marcellina, but instead facilitates two marriages and even gives his neglected and bored aristocratic young wife hope for the future. He is left with a troubled heart, and crucially, no Susanna.

 

Set in a seedy Edinburgh underworld and featuring a host of insalubrious characters including hit men, lap dancers, escorts and ageing madams, the opera charts a humorous yet profound tale of love, lust, betrayal and forgiveness. 

VoiceArc proudly present their debut production, Le Nozze di Figaro. This is truly Mozart laid bare! VoiceArc's imaginative adaptation mixes traditional and classic with the edgy and contemporary.
