Award-winning local company Kennet Opera return to the Arlington stage in another wonderful comedy, following last year’s hilarious ‘Cinderella’. In this production of Mozart’s upstairs/downstairs classic, Downton Abbey meets Aldwych farce, as Figaro, the butler, attempts to get married to his sweetheart Suzanna before the count can get his lascivious hands on her. His increasingly desperate stratagems to preserve his fiancée’s honour lead to multiple mistaken identities, cross-dressing, long-lost parents, secret assignations, locked doors, and much hiding in cupboards and jumping out of windows, before the situation is, of course, resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. And all sung (in English), with the Kennet Opera orchestra, to Mozart’s scintillating score.
