Hailed by The New York Times as "audacious and entertaining" and by Opera News as "dynamic, thought-provoking, respectful, and, yes, hilarious"  this up-to-the-minute take on "The Marriage of Figaro" recasts Mozart’s masterpiece as a multicultural musical celebration of what it really means to be an American.

 

Undocumented workers Figaro and Susana can't wait to get married, but on their way to the altar they'll have to navigate a world of lecherous bosses, Botoxed starlets, bumbling human traffickers, ambitious hip-hoppers, and pothead gardeners in a wild adventure that highlights how much life has – and hasn't – changed in the 200 years since the original premiered.

"Fearlessly written...and uproariously funny," (NYT) this audience favorite and critical hit has played to sold out performances on both coasts, including with LA Opera, where it was praised by the International Review of Music as "a delicious musical confection worthy of the Broadway stage."

 

Experience what has been called "the world's most perfect opera" in a fresh and funny English (and Spanglish!) translation that celebrates the values of diversity, equality... and comedy... that have always made America great!
