"The Marriage of Figaro"

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s masterpiece is one of the best comic operas ever written thanks to its cat-and-mouse plot that centers on “disguises, dupes, desire and disorder.”

Widely considered the earliest member of the “standard repertory” of operas regularly performed across the world, this story from 1786 is still delightful and relevant today.

Baritone Andrew Wilkowske returns as Figaro and promising young Soprano Janai Brugger debuts as his fiancée Susanna.

7:30 p.m. Thursday (June 13) and Saturday (June 15). Tickets start at $35. Music Hall, 1241 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, cincinnatiopera.org.
