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, smitten with the Countess, sings a song he's written especially for her. The two ladies start to dress Cherubino up as a woman to prepare for his illicit rendezvous with the Count, and Susanna leaves the room to find a ribbon. As they wait for her return, the Count knocks on the door, forcing Cherubino to hide in the closet. Susanna sneaks in, unnoticed, and takes Cherubino's place as the Count and Countess go in search of tools to force the closet open. Picture: Robert Workman
