Les Grands Ballets Canadiens presents

The Marriage of Figaro

By the National Ballet of Ukraine

With Les Grands Ballets Orchestra

Figaro and his fiancée, Susan, are happy and in love as they get ready for their upcoming wedding. That is until the other inhabitants of the castle begin to interfere… Cherubino imagines the beautiful young woman in his arms, while the Count pursues her relentlessly. As for Figaro, he is reminded of a previous promise of marriage. An eventful wedding in store, to say the least!

Faithful to the original play by Beaumarchais, Le Mariage de Figaro is filled with high energy and plot twists. Performed by the spectacular National Ballet of Ukraine, this production combines classical technique, colourful costumes and farcical comedy!
