“The Marriage of Figaro” is possibly one of Mozart’s best-known comic operas. The work is based on the second play in a trilogy by French playwright Beaumarchais. It is set on the wedding day of Figaro (Seth Carico) and Susanna (Ava Pine) at the palatial estate of the powerful nobleman, Count Almaviva (Alexander Elliott).
This year, the Tulsa Opera opened its 2013–14 season, themed “Love, Lust and Religion,” with Mozart’s classic on October 18 and 20. The show was sung in Italian, but English supertitles were projected above the stage, making it easy to follow the story.
