Today is Figaro's wedding day but the day is going to be full of complications. The Count is chasing Figaro's Bride while a young man is chasing the Count's wife, while an old spinster is chasing Figaro while...a lot is going on here! Leave it to Mozart to sort it all out with dazzling music. Expect disguises, mistaken identities, and a lot of hiding in (and under) things...
