Figaro's Delights

Date: 
Sunday 01st October 2017
Time: 
8pm

Presented by CIT Cork School of Music Opera Platform

Emerging young singers perform an enchanting evening of arias, duets and ensembles including scenes from Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro. At one hour long, it is a perfect introduction to opera.  

The Marriage of Figaro is considered by many to be the greatest opera in history. Written in 1786 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart during the times of the French Revolution, the opera reflects the tension between royalty and the working class. The opera is set in Spain and takes place on the wedding day of Figaro and Susanna, servants to Count Almaviva. It contains one of the greatest scenes of forgiveness between the sexes that has ever been written.

Mary MacSweeney, director of the CIT Cork School of Music Opera Platform, has selected scenes that thread their way through this wonderful opera, making the performance an ideal introduction to opera for performers and audience alike. The talented group of eight singers has recently won eight prizes at the Cork Feis Maitiu competitions.

Figaro’s Delight is an opportunity to see emerging opera singers continuing their development, making the performance real, accessible and comprehensible. It promises fun for all. The running time is one hour without an interval.

Early dinner is served in Ballymaloe House at 6pm for €50 per person.  Please ring 021 465 2531 to book.
