The Marriage of Figaro; Royal Northern Sinfonia and Nevill Holt Opera

Sage One

Royal Northern Sinfonia and Nevill Holt Opera bring this brand new fully-staged production of Mozart’s most popular opera to Gateshead.

Figaro wants his bride, but so does his master. With the help of the rejected Countess, can Figaro and Susanna outwit the philandering Count before the day is up? Mozart’s joyful masterpiece pirouettes its way through a day of madness at the palace.
