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.
Cherubino can't escape from the locked boudoir, so jumps out the window to avoid the Count. The Countess comes clean, explaining to her husband that Cherubino's hiding in the closet - but opens the door to find Susanna after all. Thinking on her feet, she says she lied to test the Count's trust as a test, which he's now failed. Unfortunately, the plan is almost foiled by the drunken gardener who's suspicious after seeing someone jump out of the window. Figaro comes to the rescue, and pretends the mystery jumper was him.
