Opéra de Montréal presents

The Marriage of Figaro

Can true love shake up the social order and help fight social inequalities? The Marriage of Figaro, a landmark work by the great Mozart, is a comic opera that is intended as a critique of the French bourgeoisie of the time – a class seriously weakened and on the verge of collapsing. This is the very first time that rising star Nicolas Ellis will be conducting at the Opéra de Montréal.


We find ourselves in Seville, in the South of Spain. Figaro and Susanna, valet and chambermaid of the Count and Countess Almaviva, are in love and are about to join their destinies together. But their marriage preparations are threatened by a number of traps and obstacles set up by a devious Count Almaviva, who is infatuated with the bride-to-be. Will the union of Figaro and Susanna prevail?

In Italian with English and French surtitles
