On a day filled with chaos and confusion in which disguised identities are revealed and shenanigans ensue, will the young lovers finally make it to the altar? Find out at Taste of Opera: The Marriage of Figaro on November 14.. It’s the most fun you’ll have this fall!

Preliminary runtime of 3 hours and 13 minutes, including one intermission.
