The Marriage of Figaro

Price: $25-$192
There's nothing more romantic than a late spring wedding, which is exactly why the maid Susana and the barber Figaro plan to get married on a lovely May evening. Their master, Count Almaviva, certainly plans to enjoy himself. The count has a scheme to bed Susana before the wedding, which many would consider poor form. But in Mozart's brilliant comic opera The Marriage of Figaro, the louche nobleman is a horny fool who will be neatly duped by the two lovers, each of whom has their own plan to leave him sitting on his hands. Opera Theatre St. Louis opens its new season with the crowd-pleasing show. The Marriage of Figaro opens at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 25, at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.opera-stl.org), and is then performed in repertory seven more times through June 19. Tickets are $25 to $192.
