Opera Colorado closes the 2018-19 season with Mozart’s comedic genius, in a production set among the courtly opulence of 18th century Seville and featuring a brilliant ensemble cast. The wily Figaro and his love, Susanna, are set to marry, but Count Almaviva is intent on seducing the bride-to-be—stoking not only the couple’s ire, but the frustrations of the long-suffering Countess. What unfolds is hilarious chaos set to a sparkling score.
