Bath Opera presents The Marriage of Figaro. Strode Theatre. Street.
This production will be set at Almaviva Studios, a big budget film studio in the 1950s (think Pinewood) run by a powerful and influential producer.
The world is rethinking itself in the aftermath of the Second World War, the death of empire and the ever-present threat of the Cold War. Crucially for this opera, the role of women in society is breaking free from traditional restrictions but universal suffrage is a relatively recent phenomenon and British society at large is still, generally, quite conservative with a long way to go in terms of addressing systemic inequality. However, things are changing and the cultural revolutions of the 1960s are just around the corner…
Friday 30 June 7:30PM. Strode Theatre
- Director: Will Stevens
- Musical Director: Peter Blackwood
