One of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's most successful works, this comedy, sung by five performers, is full of misunderstanding and jokes. Figaro is due to marry Susanna. Both are servants of Count Almaviva, who also has his eye on Susanna. The Countess is not at all amused by the escapades of her husband and tries to trap the Count with the help of Susanna.
