Enjoy Mozart’s genius at its most lively and delightful, when the Royal Opera House screen their live performance of Le Nozze di Figaro.

It can be seen at The Castle Theatre in Wellingborough on Monday October 5 and starts at 6.45pm.

Based on a play that was originally banned for its political content, the fast-moving libretto creates realistic characters made even more human by Mozart’s outstanding music.

David McVicar’s popular staging of this comedy returns in the hands of the leading British conductor Ivor Bolton.

The cast is led by the star bass Erwin Schrott, who has sung the role to great acclaim at Covent Garden before, partnered with star Romanian soprano Anita Hartig in the role of Susanna.

Often considered a perfect opera, this live broadcast of Le nozze di Figaro is the perfect treat for opera fans.

Tickets are priced between £13.50 and £15.

They can be purchased by calling the box office on 01933 270 007 or alternatively by going online at www.thecastle.org.uk.
