THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO
Gaiety Theatre
17, 18, 20, 21 April 2018
 One of the greatest comic operas ever written, Mozart’s fast-paced masterpiece The Marriage of Figaro is a highlight of Irish National Opera’s 2018 programme and draws together an outstanding cast and creative team to bring Irish opera right back into the heart of Dublin city, to the Gaiety Theatre stage.
This comic tale of mayhem and mischief boasts some of the most beautiful and familiar music ever written including the famous overture. Mozart’s superb score drives the drama with unforgettable solos and hilarious ensemble numbers and the energetic story of servants outwitting their masters and the quick-witted Susanna rejecting her employer’s advances has thrilled and delighted audiences for 250 years. 
With a dream-team ensemble cast, Irish National Opera’s first main-stage opera features Irish celebrity mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught, fresh from the Met Opera New York, who sings Susanna and is joined by internationally acclaimed Irish singers Máire Flavin (Scottish Opera & Glyndebourne Opera Festival),  Aoife Miskelly (Welsh National Opera & Opera North), veteran star Suzanne Murphy (English National Opera, WNO & Opera North), Ben McAteer (English National Opera & WNO), up-and-coming soprano Amy Ní Fhearraigh, and critically acclaimed New Zealand bass Jonathan Lemalu singing the title role.
Celebrated theatre and opera director Patrick Mason, acclaimed designer Francis O’Connor, and award winning lighting designer Paul Keogan join with rising star maestro Peter Whelan in a new partnership with the world class Irish Chamber Orchestra and the chorus of Irish National Opera to stage this exquisite and spirited production of The Marriage of Figaro.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles
