Icelandic Opera returns to the stage of the Icelandic National Theatre with Mozart´s Le nozze di Figaro.The opera is about love, marriage and entitlement. Figaro and Susanna must survive their wedding day and overcome huge obstacles – mistrust, jealousy, betrayal, lawsuits, massive debts and a lecherous lord. Meanwhile, as one marriage begins, another seems to be collapsing. The abandoned and furious Countess is hoping to save her marriage to the philandering Count, a nobleman intent on exercising decadent and ancient rights to which he mistakenly believes himself fully entitled. In a sparkling new baroque 'n' roll production full of aristocratic absurdity, farce and comedy, the eighteenth century has never looked so colourful, vibrant and fun. 

Are YOU coming to the wedding of the year? 

HERE you can buy an early-bird ticket until April 1st.
