Charming, lighthearted and endlessly enjoyable, Mozart’s most popular opera is a perpetual motion machine that sparkles with genius. There’s never a dull moment for a lascivious Count and his entourage as they navigate the ups and downs of preparing a wedding—or two! Vivid characters, glowing wit, dizzying ensembles, mistaken identities, and carefully constructed intrigue make for a miraculous marriage of music and drama in this sublime comedy of manners as touching as it is funny.
