STORY OF THE OPERA
The comedy "The Marriage of Figaro" was written by Beaumarchais as the sequel to his earlier comedy "The Barber of Seville," and the same characters are carried on with a few new ones added. Figaro, the barber, has been rewarded for his services to the Count Almaviva, in winning the hand of Rosina, who is now the Countess Almaviva, by being made the personal servant of the Count. Figaro loves Susanna, maid of the Countess, and who is also the object of the ever changeable affections of the Count, and it is only through a mesh of clever intrigue in which he,is aided b)f the Countess and her page, Cherubino, that he is able to circumvent the Count, save Susanna and force the Count's consent to the marriage. Basilio, music teacher, is the obsequious instrument of the Count in his escapades with women, and the Count receives also aid of Bartolo, and his house keeper, Marcellina. There are plots and counter plots which with intrigue and disguises keep one guessing, and the audience is kept in a continuous stream of laughter when not entranced by the rapturous strains of the music.
