The World's Greatest Music
Revenge, disguise, love, trickery and a wedding thrown in for good measure - but what's the story of Mozart's famous comic opera? Take a look at our synopsis, featuring pictures from Glyndebourne's latest production.
"If you want to dance, I'll play the guitar for you," explains Figaro. He's planning to humour the Count and gradually unravel his schemes to sleep with Susanna, and sings a snippet of the aria once more in this scene. Now he's planning to distract the Count with anonymous letters, warning him of adulterers in the court. He advises the Countess not to send Cherubino away to the army - rather, she should dress him up as Susanna and trick the Count into seducing him. Picture: Robert Workman
