Back by popular demand -- for three weeks only! -- this up-to-the-minute take on "The Marriage of Figaro" returns to The Duke on 42nd Street in a production that the New York Times hailed as "audacious and entertaining" and Opera News called "dynamic, thought-provoking, respectful, and, yes, hilarious."
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 recasts the classic opera as a madcap comedy about citizenship in today's America.
"Fearlessly written...and uproariously funny," (NYT) this audience favorite and critical hit returns to New York after 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 and equality that have always made America great.
