What is the story?
The Marriage of Figaro explores territory that would have surely raised a few eyebrows in its day, i.e. the contentious relationship between the lower and ruling classes. Set in Spain, serial love rat Count Almaviva has set his sights on his Countess' maid Susanna, much to the chagrin of his valet Figaro, who is Susanna's betrothed. The Countess, Susanna, Figaro, and their fellow servants conspire to punish the rapscallion Count with hysterical results.
